In April, 8-12, delegation of Research and Design Institute of Urea took part in 2013 IFA Global Safety Summit & Technical Symposium which was organized in Santiago, Chili. The delegation was represented by the President of JSC NIIK Mr Igor Esin

NIIK presented a report regarding the production of complex fertilizers in HSDG which attracted huge rate of interest of nitrogen fertilizer industry representatives and potash and phosphate industry manufacturers, facing now the problem of utilization of by- products, such as sulphur and phosphogypsum. 

The report coincided well with the main topic of the event; the addition of ammonium sulphate to ammonium nitrate increasing its agronomic effectiveness and thereby making the products more economically attractive can also decrease its explosiveness. 

Safety in a very broad sense including workplace safety, end product safety and environmental friendless was the focal point of the discussions. At the end of the meeting the participants were invited to SQM facility at Atacama Desert one of the driest places on Earth where lithium and potash are presently commercially recovered. 

Our team was very pleased to meet during the Summit Mr William J. Doyle, President of IFA and CEO of Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc, Ms. Charlotte Hebebrand, IFA General Director and Volker Andresen, Director of IFA's Technical Committee and its regional representative for the Eastern region and Central Asia. During the meeting we expressed strong desire to support fertilizer association in further collaboration initiatives in Russia.
