Chemists to Help Farmers

Uzbekistan is planning to launch the country's first large-scale production of complex fertilizers in January 2016.

As reported by the O‘zkimyosanoat press service, all construction and installation works will be completed by the end of December to proceed with the commissioning and testing of the equipment, and production of first products in the end of January.

Uzbekistan ranks among the few countries in the world to produce all three types of fertilizers: nitrogen, phosphate and potash. This is conditioned not just by the availability of the resource base, but also by the high demand of the boosting agricultural sector. At the same time, the region and CIS countries have a significant export capacity for this type of products.

Based on these realities, it was decided to organize the production of complex fertilizers that would contain all three of the existing types. The new product has a plenty of advantages. Along with obvious increase of yields, complex fertilizers are free from harmful contaminants, environmentally friendly and are well absorbed by plants.

New capacities have been established on the basis of Samarkandkimyo Company in Samarkand. The total project cost has exceeded $20 million, including $5 million of the company’s own funds, and $15 million of foreign investments and loans.

Having extensive experience in the production of similar equipment, the Chinese company of Jiangsu was entrusted with turnkey installation of the technological line. The company is planning to produce 100,000 tons of products in the first year after the launch, and in furtherance reach the projected capacity of 240,000 tons.

The project is seen as strategic for the economy of Uzbekistan, because the share of agriculture in GDP made up 15.4% in the first nine months of 2015 alone. In the long term, the share of crop production in the agricultural sector will continue to grow due to the expansion of exports of fruit and vegetables.

It is also planned to organize a similar project on the basis of Almalyk ernterprise Ammofos-Maxam with the capacity of 160,000 tons per year. The launch is scheduled for 2016.

Uzbekistan has produced a total of over 1 million tons of fertilizers, including 801.600 tons of nitrogen, 117.400 tons of phosphate, and 124.500 tons of potash fertilizers in the first ten months of the current year.
