PRESS RELEASE

 

Tîrgu Mureș, 19 November 2015 – Azomureş celebrated completion of the largest modernization program in the last 30 years, through an event organized in Tȋrgu Mureş.

In the presence of authorities and the chemical plant’s partners, Azomureş, together with the Ameropa board, marked the beginning of a new phase with the promising perspective of better productivity, improved products and reduction of environment emissions.

The plant revamp ensures compliance with the new environmental regulations applicable from January 2016.

The investments worth 240 million € included, among others, modernization of key installations on the platform (such as the Urea plant and the Ammonia plant) and building of a new industrial water treatment station. The installations will be commissioned in December 2015. Azomureş has thus reconfirmed its valuable contribution to Romanian agriculture. In this respect, over 70% of the plant’s fertilizer production goes to the Romanian market. Moreover, the plant for the new product, granular urea, which is unique in South-Eastern Europe, has been completed.

Azomureş will continue to actively support farmers, through technical assistance and the provision of different materials, to make adequate use of fertilizers.

This year, Azomureş ended an important phase in its evolution, a phase which consolidates the plant’s role in Romanian agriculture and its position among Europe’s top-ranking chemical plants.
