Press release – Commissioning of the filtration plant on the Azomures platform



Azomures, the most important Romanian producer of mineral fertilizers for agricultural use, has completed investment on one of the main ammonium nitrate granulation units.
Tîrgu Mureș, 03 November 2015 – Works on the new plant have been completed based on a project of Canadian company Lavalin, one of the world’s most prestigious companies in this field. The plant was set up by Romanian companies such as: Comoserv, Moldocor, Actemium and Emerson. During five months, the entire Azomures team managed to complete works on the new filtration plant – emission capture and scrubbing equipment – within the targeted deadline. The result of this investment worth 4 million Euro leads to compliance with the new environmental parameters in accordance with the European Union directives regarding environment protection.
Moreover, works on the new filtration plant for the second ammonium nitrate (fertilizer) granulation unit are 90 % completed and the plant will be commissioned shortly. Azomures has the same objective: to decrease emission level and to comply with European standards – thus becoming one of the most important landmarks on Romania’s economic map. The value of the investment rises to approximately 4.5 million Euro.
In parallel with the commissioning of new equipment in the granulation units, all the investments contained in the conformance plan imposed by European authorities are currently being finalized on the Azomures platform.
On the occasion of this accomplishment, Azomures has informed the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Environmental Police of the commissioning of new equipment.
