EuroChem opens new fertilizer plant in Lithuania


EuroChem Group AG, a leading global fertilizer producer, announces the formal opening of a new production plant for highly efficient, water-soluble fertilizers at its Lifosa subsidiary in Lithuania.

The €14 million ($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. These include diammonium phosphate (DAP), a nitrogen-phosphorus fertilizer, and water-soluble 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. As it is soluble in water it can easily be applied by a sprinkler and provides plants with the necessary nitrogen and phosphorus 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.
