Gasoline Production in Petrochem Plants a Recipe for Disaster
EghtesadOnline: A llowing petrochemical plants to produce gasoline is the worst strategy to overcome the deficit caused by growing consumption, said former managing director of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company.
"The state-run National Iranian Oil Company produces close to 105 million liters of gasoline per day, of which 100% are burnt locally and the demand is on the rise incessantly," Abbas Kazemi was also quoted as saying by ILNA.
There are effective alternatives to tackle the issue, the least viable of which is producing gasoline in petrochemical plants, he added.
Kazemi noted that what they make is not gasoline, but pyrolysis products that undergo thermal degradation, without interacting with oxygen or any other oxidants.
