Opening one of Russia’s first urea ammonium sulphate plants

Novomoskovsk, Russia – Eurochem, a leading global mineral fertilizer producer, and Stamicarbon, the innovation and license company of Maire Tecnimont Group, announce the formal opening of Russia’s first urea-ammonium sulphate (UAS) plant at EuroChem’s Novomoskovskiy Azot plant, located about 200 kilometers south of Moscow.

Stamicarbon designed the ammonium sulphate plant at Novomoskovsk with a capacity of 400 mtpd urea and 600 mtpd UAS. After commissioning of the granulation equipment, UAS production started earlier today under the supervision of Stamicarbon engineers on site. The startup went very smoothly and the first UAS granules are now rolling off the production line.

Stamicarbon developed a process for the production of granulated urea containing ammonium sulphate (UAS) following an increased demand for granulated urea containing macro- and micro-nutrients.

Main features of the Stamicarbon UAS technology are the large range of ammonium sulphate concentrations (0-50 wt%) that can be handled without modifying the granulation plant and the high quality of UAS granules produced.

Urea ammonium sulphate helps farmers significantly increase crop yields. UAS production will complement EuroChem’s current portfolio of sulphur-enriched fertilizers, which includes ammonium sulphate (AS) and ammonium sulphate-nitrate (ASN). The opening ceremony today was attended by Igor Nechaev, General Director of MCC EuroChem, the Group’s Russian arm, Henri Smolenaers, Project Manager Stamicarbon and Semen Evreinov, Head of Stamicarbon’s office Russia.
