Morteza Shahmirzaei said on Sunday that
social investment of petrochemical companies must be targeted and intelligent
to reduce discrimination.
He said that the annual capacity of the
petrochemical industry is 90 million tons, which will reach about 200 million
tons by the end of the eighth development plan to 2030, adding: "Today, an
equivalent of 1.1 mbd of crude oil feedstock is supplied to petrochemical
complexes which is planned to reach 2.6 mbd by 2030.”
The CEO of the National Petrochemical Company
continued: "By doubling the amount of feedstock supplied to petrochemical
complexes by the end of the eighth development plan, high value-added products
will be produced that are not comparable to the current output."
Shahmirzaei emphasized: providing
infrastructure, paying attention to the surrounding environment, social responsibility
and specialized training of local forces are among the things that are
necessary to achieve the development goals of the petrochemical industry.
