The products were unveiled in a Wednesday ceremony in Iran’s Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) in Tehran.
“We unveiled eight nano carbon products with carbon structure; graphene which is used a lot in the industry, graphene oxide, single-walled and multi-walled nano tubes, carbon nano filters, carbon nano balls and porous nano graphenes,” RIPI Head Vahid Hadadi-Asl told reporters.
Iran’s Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi said at the event that Tehran is completely self-sufficient in oil industry equipment.
“Most of the equipment we used to look for in the international markets is being manufactured by our industrialists today. I can say with great confidence that we are not worried about our oil industry being sanctioned,” he said.
According to officials, Iran plans to export the new nano products to regional countries.
