Iran to export petrochemical knowledge
Tehran, IRNA – For the first time in the country, Iran will export petrochemical knowledge and technology, managing director of Petrochemical Research and Technology Co. (PRTC) announced Sunday.
Esmaeil Qanbari told IRNA that talks with foreign companies to review their demands are under way.
After the announcement of 'Implementation Day' of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on January 16 and after opening a new chapter in international interactions, PRTC prioritized exports of petrochemical technology to foreign companies, Qanbari added.
The official said Iranian company has held talks with South Korea and India on exchange of knowledge in the areas of gas-to-methanol process and production of propylene.
Iran is willing to have constructive interactions with international companies, he noted.
In recent years, Iran has become self-sufficient in some petrochemical technologies, he said, adding that domestic experts managed to make production of a number of technologies indigenous when Iran was under sanctions.
