SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s Yidu Xingfa Chemical plans to start up its 600,000 tonne/year ammonium phosphate plant at Yidu in Hubei in January 2012, a company source said on Tuesday.
The plant can produce 300,000 tonnes/year of monoammonium phosphate (MAP), consisting of 55% powdered MAP and 60% granular MAP, and 300,000 tonnes/year of 64% diammonium phosphate (DAP), the source added.
After the ammonium phosphate plant comes on stream in the first phase of the project, the Yidu Xingfa will begin construction of a nitrogen phosphorus potassium (NPK) plant in the second phase, the source said.
