NIIK shared with AFA delegates its experience in the modernization of Urea plants

     NIIK delegation presented by Deputy Director for R&D Nikolai Lobanov, Lead Engineer of Corrosion Dpt. Artem Panshin and International affairs manager Dmitry Obedin attended a regular 29th AFA Int’l. Fertilizer Technology Conference on October 11–13th, in Tunis
    This time the Conference was devoted to the various methods for efficiency improvement of existing fertilizer plants in the current economic context. The delegates from Middle East countries, Europe and Asia shared their know-how, ideas and experience in the modernization of fertilizer plants’ processes with relation to the deliver superior long-term financial performance and also considering the minimization of environmental impacts through the re-equipment of some parts of production chains and use of innovative science and technology.
Inasmuch as NIIK has been working over a number of years for enhancement of Urea production process, our representatives had a good opportunity to discuss with the esteemed conference participants possible solutions in this field.      Taking into account our experience, NIIK’s paper “Extension of Urea Reactor Remaining Life Time” attracted considerable interest of the delegates. After the paper, some urea and ammonia manufacturers proposed to continue the cooperation with NIIK in the field of the plant process improvement.
     It should be also emphasized that the paper presentation was not the only reason for NIIK to take part in the conference. Of course, this event is traditionally a high-level platform for business communication and exchange. At the conference NIIK team held many meetings with urea manufacturers from Egypt, Saudi Arabia and European countries. We hope that the reached agreements will become a strong basis for further cooperation with our partners.
