China, India Prefer Iran to Other Int'l Sulfur Suppliers

Economy - China and India, as two giant sulfur consumers in Asia, prefer to supply sulfur from Iran's Shaheed Hasheminejad Refinery due to its better quality compared with rival products of other refineries in the continent, the refinery's executive manager announced.

Naser Eslami announced that Shaheed Hasheminejad Refinery has exported 75 percent of its recovered sulfur to destinations in China and India.

Eslami went on to say that the refinery can produce 2,100 tons of sulfur a day and recovers over 600,000 tons of sulfur annually besides processing natural gas.

He added that the refinery can also produce 650 tons a day of granulated sulfur or sulfur Bentonite which is used as fertilizer.

In December 2013, a senior Iranian energy official said that Iran has a plan to increase its exports of Sulfur up to 1 million tons in the near future.

“The annual sulfur exports have amounted to 650,000 tons, and we are planning to increase this volume to about 1 million tons through operation of South Pars new refineries,” CEO of the Iranian Gas Commercial Company (IGCC) Mohammad Ali Barati said.

Extracting sulfur from oil and gas raw material is a dominant policy in Oil Ministry which has contributed to increased gas products volume from refineries.
