Iran became self-sufficient in the supply of benzene as Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Plant fully realized the item’s production plan in the previous calendar year which ended on March 20.
According to Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Company, the aromatic complex succeeded in producing more than 100% of its production program for benzene in the calendar year of 1399 and reached maximum production by supplying 85,610 thousand tons of petrochemicals, up 8% year-on-year.
In this regard, Ardalan Sedaghatzadeh, the Commercial Director of Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Company, said: "This increase in production has made the country needless of importing benzene as a strategic item, which is used as a base product in detergents and hygiene products.”
He continued: "With the 100% realization of the production plan in 1399, in addition to preventing the import of benzene, we exported part of the production of this strategic item, which in the face of harsh unilateral and oppressive sanctions against the country, has brought the country significant wealth."
The commercial director of Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Company added: "Also in 1399, the production of light cut rose 22%, heavy cut 7% and liquefied petroleum gas 7%.”
Sedaghatzadeh stated during the same year, the company’s land exports grew 340% year-on-year.
As he said, the total sales of the company showed a 25% increase compared to the preceding year, which promises good days of Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Company under the sanctions by relying on domestic capabilities.
