NIIK delegation attended a regular 23rd AFA Annual Fertilizer Forum

NIIK delegation presented by Deputy Director for R&D Nikolai Lobanov, Head of Process Dept. Rinat Anderzhanov, Head of Corrosion Dept. Aleksandr Chirkov and International affairs manager Dmitry Obedin attended a regular 23rd AFA Annual Fertilizer Forum in Cairo, Egypt.
This time the Forum was devoted to the various methods for modernization of existing fertilizer plants and production of new types of fertilizers which become the most marketable in the current economic context of price declines for hydrocarbons. The delegates from Middle East countries, Europe and Asia shared their know-how, ideas and experience in fabrication of a new line of innovative fortified products and also in optimization of the process flow to keep the operational costs down.
Inasmuch as NIIK has been working over a number of years for engineering of new Urea plants and enhancement of production process at the existing units, 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 “Recent Global Trends for Production of Compound Fertilizers” 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.
