EuroChem Inaugurates Fertilizer Plant In Lithuania
EuroChem Group AG, a leading global fertilizer producer, announced the formal opening of a new production plant for highly efficient, water-soluble fertilizers at its Lifosa subsidiary in Lithuania.
The $16 million facility will produce 25,000 metric tonnes of crystalline urea phosphate per year, adding to the range of high-quality fertilizers currently manufactured at Lifosa which includes Diammonium Phosphate (DAP), a nitrogen-phosphorus fertilizer, and watersoluble crystal Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP).
Crystalline urea phosphate is a soluble, chlorine-free fertilizer that contains no heavy metals and is suitable for use on various soils. Due to its high solubility in water, it can easily be applied by a sprinkler and provide plants with the necessary nitrogen and phosphorous nutrients needed for growth.
Test production of crystalline urea phosphate began in September, and the plant will ramp up to full production by the end of the year.
