25th August 2015

 

On November 2015, Azomures will celebrate completion of the amplest modernization process in its recent history by a special event organized in Tirgu Mures. Local and central authorities, members of the local community, company partners and mass media will be invited to attend the event.

The investments have reached the amount of 240 million Euro and their effect is a decrease of emissions in the environment, the increase of production capacity and also an improved quality of the final product.

Among other objectives, the project consisted of modernizing the Urea production unit, of the Ammonia III and Ammonia IV plants and building a new industrial water treatment facility. The new installations and the modernized ones will be put into operation in December 2015. The upgrades performed at the enterprise ensure compliance with the new environmental standards applicable from January 2016.

In only 3 years, since 2013 to 2015, the Azomures stockholder, Ameropa, has made an investment 6 times bigger than all the investments made over a period of 14 years by the previous owner.. Following Ameropa international policy, Azomures integrates economic and social objectives as part of our business strategy, with the intent of promoting sustainable development.

Azomures has benefited from the support and trust of the state authorities and of one of the most important partners, the local community. Thus, the modernization program is taking place according to the plan, producing long-term benefits in terms of local and national economy.

Azomures is the most important Romanian fertilizer producer. The supply of best-quality fertilizers as well as the constant technical assistance provided to Romanian farmers is a proof of their valuable cooperation with Azomures. Thus, the plant is a reliable partner of Romanian farmers and it brings a major contribution to the development of the agricultural sector, which is one of the main pillars of the Romanian economy.

The manifested concern for sustainable development through environment protection as well as the implementation of various activities dedicated to support the community, place Azomures among the most modern and efficient fertilizer plants in Europe.
