Ukraine’s manufacturer of mineral fertilizers Cherkasy-based PJSC Azot, a part of the Ostchem holding owned by businessman Dmytro Firtash, has resumed the production of ammonia and carbamide after overhauls, according to Ostchem’s press service.
“After major repairs, the company has resumed production of ammonia (workshop A-5) and carbamide (workshop M-2),” it wrote on Facebook.
In late May Ukraine’s Interdepartmental Commission on International Trade decided to resume antidumping duties on the import of some Russian nitrogen fertilizers to Ukraine to protect the national producers and reduce the Ukrainian agrarians’ dependence on chemicals supplies.
Following that, Ostchem announced in June that three out of four chemical plants, namely Azot (Cherkasy), Rivneazot (Rivne), and Sievierodonetsk Azot Association (Sievierodonetsk) planned to restart the production of mineral fertilizers. (UNIAN/Business World Magazine)
