TEHRAN, Feb. 28 (MNA) – The CEO of Iran's Noori Petrochemical Plant referred to an agreement with domestic knowledge-based firms to localize the catalyst of "CCR" and announced the setting of a new record in aromatic items output by the company.

According to the National Petrochemical Company (NPC), Taghi Sanei underlined the signing of a contract to develop one of the most widely used catalysts in the aromatic industry with Iranian knowledge-based companies.

Elsewhere in his remarks, he said that the plant’s output was expected to reach 4.8 million tons by March 20 which would be regarded as a historic record in the production of aromatic items in the country.
