» Pentane Chemistry Industries (PCI) is being designated for engaging or attempting to engage in activities that have materially contributed to, or posed a risk of contributing to, the development of Iran’ s Weapons of Mass Destruction ( WMD ) programs. PCI is an Iranian entity involved in building distillation columns for the production of heavy water for use in Iran’s IR -40 heavy water reactor, under construction in Arak, Iran. Since late 2009 PCI has been in charge of the distillation column project at this reactor. PCI has also attempted to procure phosphor bronze mesh as recently as July 2011. Phosphor bronze mesh can be used in distillation columns for final enrichment of heavy water. PCI began manufacturing phosphor bronze mesh screens for the distillation columns in March 2012. Chemically -treated phosphor bronze, when knitted into mesh screens, will be used as packing in the IR -40 distillation columns;
