Tehran Municipality used a new type of nano iron-chelated fertilizer produced by Sodour Ahrar-e-Shargh company in Iran to increase oxygen production by plants via affecting their respiration cycles.
The 'Khazra' iron chelated fertilizer, produced by means of nanotechnology, promotes oxygen production by plants via affecting their respiration cycles and it improves their growth to a considerable extent. These properties persuaded Tehran Municipality to utilize the aforementioned product.
According to the manager of Khazra fertilizer project, through the interactions between Tehran Municipality and Sodour Ahrar-e-Shargh, about one million dollars of this product was bought by Tehran Municipality and utilized in different areas of Tehran within the last year.
Elaborating on the properties of this fertilizer, Eng. Nazaran added said, "Application of nano iron-chelated fertilizer in polluted locations of Tehran could help lowering the pollution and growing oxygen levels. Absorption and breakage of environmental pollutants such as carbon dioxide, ozone, and nitrite and the effects of iron found in the fertilizer on the plants respiration cycle (Krebs) constitute a group of environment oxygen increasing factors."
According to him, the production of this fertilizer has begun officially since 2006 and contracts have been signed for exporting this product to foreign countries like Korea, Turkey, and Kuwait as well as developing the domestic market.
