According to Press TV, Alireza Zeighami said on Sunday that the refining capacity of the Residual Fluid Catalytic Cracking (RFCC) unit of Shazand Imam Khomeini Refinery in central Iran is twice that of the world’s biggest RFCC unit.
He added that the world’s largest RFCC unit has the refining capacity of 45,000 barrels of oil per day, while the refining capacity of Imam Khomeini Refinery’s RFCC unit is 90-95 thousand barrels a day.
He said: “The US, the European Union and Zionists will soon witness the outcome of anti-Iran sanctions with the launch of the country’s largest RFCC refining unit.”
The United States, Zionist regime, and some of their allies accuse Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program with Washington and the European Union using this false claim to impose illegal unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
Iran refutes the nuclear allegations and notes that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it is entitled to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
