“PUŁAWY” bets on fertilizers
Grupa Azoty “PUŁAWY” is currently focusing on intensive development of Agro (agricultural) Segment. Over the past 5 years, the Company has spent 1.2 billion PLN to this end.
New facilities were opened on July 8th. The first one is an exhaust desulfurization installation, the first such in Europe and third one in the world. By reducing CO2 emissions, “PUŁAWY” will help to protect the environment and will be able to recycle the sulfur obtained in the process. The element will be used in New Fertilizer Complex, the first stage of the construction of new solid fertilizers complex based on sulfur and other elements. The Complex is scheduled for completion at the end of 2014. Another project in progress is the construction of ammonia stockage with 15,000 tonnes capacity.
Next come new products
Owing to investments in sustainable development, “PUŁAWY” is capable of effective competition on fertilizer market. One tool is boosting efficiency of production, another is diversification of its product portfolio, in response to demand indicated by farmers. PULASKA is a good example, being a fertilizer manufactured based on ammonium sulfate (from exhaust desulfurization installation) and urea. The Company is also developing ammonium nitrate-based fertilizers. Pursuing such areas of activity, “PUŁAWY” both strengthens its Agro Segment and points at new directions of development of the fertilizer industry.
