October 26/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Blast causes fire at petrochemical plant in southwest Iran, fire contained, said Reuters.

An explosion caused a blaze in an aromatics unit of a petrochemicals plant in southwestern Iran on Friday and was brought under control, state broadcaster IRIB reported.

Firefighters from the petrochemicals plant near the port of Bandar Imam Khomeini and regional fire teams responded to contain the blaze and there were no injuries, IRIB said on its social media feed.

As MRC informed earlier, Iran will launch 42 petrochemical projects by the end of next year.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC"s ScanPlast report, Russia"s estimated PE consumption totalled 1,496,500 tonnes in the first eight months of 2020, up by 5% year on year. Shipments of all ethylene polymers increased, except for linear low desnity polyethylene (LLDPE). At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 767,2900 tonnes in the eight months of 2020 (calculated using the formula - production minus exports plus imports - and not counting producers" inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply increased exclusively of PP random copolymer.
