The first iodine production plant of Iran is to be inaugurated in the northern province of Golestan.

By launching the plant, Iran will join the nine producers of iodine. Over 25 billion rials (some $2.7 million) has been invested in the project. The plant will produce 65 tons of iodine annually with over 99.5 percent of purity.

Iran has joined Russia, China, Japan, Indonesia, Chile, the U.S., Turkmenistan, and Azerbaijan as the 9 producers of iodine in the world.

A plan is underway for boosting the plant’s production capacity to 130 tons.
