 Polymerization Engineering Department

  General Information:-
Working area:
Polymerization pilot plant design, construction and operation to directing the laboratory researches into the pilot scale production and finally know how presentation in pilot scale.
In this way we notice to reaction kinetics, process dynamics, control and optimisation. Also we take into consideration economical evaluations, waste treatment and technological problems.
In view of agreement signed with national petrochemical company most of research activities of this faculty will exclusively be towards Projects allocated to us by NPC _ R&T; .
The main farm work for these joint research projects are, polyolefines and other polymers produced by NPC.
The current projects in row 6 and 7 are in accordance with such arrangement . It is hoped that, with completion of these research Projects, all research activities of this faculty be in line with petrochemical needs.
