Iranian researchers produce gasoline and petrochemical products via a new cheap method

Iranian researchers at Amir-Kabir University of Technology have succeeded to produce gasoline and petrochemical products with natural gas via a new and low-cost method.

“The use of oil in production of catalysts is highly expensive, and in this project we used natural gas and converted the gas into light olefins,” Eshaq Moradian, one of the researchers, said.

“Also, in this project, we used ultrasonic waves in the catalytic design and fabrication stage as well as the nano properties of the materials to reduce the fabrication reaction time and decrease the conventional refinery costs,” he added.

Moradian underlined that the project is ready for exercise at petrochemical industries and gasoline refineries.
