TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- The profitability of Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Plant will rise by $50 million once the company installs its new distillation tower.

Touted as the largest tower of the country's petrochemical industry, the structure is designed and built by local experts and has just entered the plant for installation in the paraxylene unit.

According to Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Company, Omid Azmian, the project manager of the company's paraxylene unit, said the distillation tower has been cuilt by taking advantage of the state-of-the-art technology.

He added: "Foreign parties were not willing to transfer the construction knowhow of this tower to the country under the pretext of cruel and unilateral sanctions. In such circumstances, the design and construction of this huge and important tower was entrusted to Iranian youths which led to saving at least €3 million.”

The tower weighs 1,200 tons and is 100 meters high.

Azemian continued: The paraxylene unit will reach the pre-commissioning stage by the end of this calendar year and the paraxylene and orthosylene products produced by this unit will be sent to other petrochemical complexes in the country.
