Eurochem Group announced the opening of a new production plant for efficient, water-soluble fertilizers at its Lifosa subsidiary in Lithuania. The $ 16 million facility will produce 25,000 metric tonnes (KMT) of crystalline urea phosphate per year, adding to the range of fertilizers currently manufactured at the site.

Kėdainiai/Lithuania — 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 phosphorous nutrients needed for growth.

According to Jonas Dastikas, General Manager of AB Lifosa, this new facility will further strengthen Lifosa's position in the global fertilizer market. At the same time, the construction of the plant was an investment in the sustainable development of the company, he said. Test production of crystalline urea phosphate began in September, and the plant will ramp up to full production by the end of the year. Apart from that, the plant already produced Diammonium Phosphate (DAP), a nitrogen-phosphorus fertilizer, and water-soluble crystal Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP).
