Capacity of chemical complex under construction in Uzbekistan will be 0.9 mln tonnes of fertilizer per year

TASHKENT. Nov 21 (Interfax) - The capacity of the Samarkandkimyo chemical complex (Samarkand Chemical Plant), currently under construction in Uzbekistan, will be 540,000 tonnes of NPK fertilizers and 370,000 tonnes of granular monoammonium phosphate, a statement from general contractor Enter Engineering said.

Therefore, the production capacity of the new complex will be 910,000 tonnes of fertilizers per year.

In addition, Samarkandkimyo will produce up to 800,000 tonnes of sulfuric acid, as well as up to 280,000 tonnes of phosphoric acid per year.

To date, the design and general construction work (earth and concrete) has been fully completed, and process equipment and metal structures are being accepted and installed, the statement says.

The new chemical enterprise will become the centerpiece of a vertically integrated complex for the production of mineral fertilizers: from extraction of raw materials at the South Jeroy site of the Jeroy-Sardarinsky deposit in the Tomdi district of the Navoiy region in northwestern Uzbekistan and its preparation at the Navoiy enrichment plant to the release of the final product. All complex facilities will be connected by a separate railway line for transporting both raw materials and finished products.

Modern environmental protection technologies that comply with international environmental standards will be introduced into the production processes, the statement says.
