HOUSTON (ICIS)--ThyssenKrupp Uhde has received a contract for a nitric acid plant and liquid fertilizer urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) plant in Grodno, Belarus, the German-based engineering firm announced on Monday.
Grodno Azot awarded the contract for the engineering, supply of equipment and material, supervision of installation and start-up of the 1,200 tonne/day nitric acid plant and the 3,395 tonne/day UAN plant, which are scheduled to come on line in 2016.
“The population is growing; land available for agricultural use is disappearing,” said Hans Christoph Atzpodien, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions. “That means that more food has to be grown for more people on an ever smaller area of land, and the processes used for this have to be eco-friendly, efficient and sustainable to protect resources for future generations."
