EuroChem In­au­gu­rates Fer­til­izer Plant In Lithua­nia

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

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.
