The competitive landscape of the fertilizers industry is rapidly evolving, as the US shale gas boom, Chinese government policies, and political upsets in Ukraine threaten to alter global production and trade flows. Combined with growing capacity in North Africa and the Middle East, it’s essential for industry players to keep up with the fast-moving fertilizers business.
This two-day interactive course explores both the technical and commercial aspects of fertilizers, addressing key principles in light of recent developments. As such, it’s a valuable opportunity for those new or returning to the industry to enhance their understanding.
Delegates will gain insight into the fertilizer production tree, main commodities and applications, cost structures, supply/demand, transport and financial principles such as hedging. Comprehensive yet non-technical, the course provides a clear view of the industry.
