SHANA  — The CEO of Nirouchlor Company said that the company’s exports to Europe, despite the restrictions caused by the coronavirus in the world, reached about 5,000 tons.

According to Tamin Petroleum & Petrochemical Investment Co. (TAPPICO), Vahid Namnik said: “Although the world is affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, we have managed to export a new 1,000-ton shipment of chlorine to Europe.”

Since March, the company has exported 4,800 tons of petrochemical, he said.
