Granular urea from Turkmenistan

Granular Urea, containing 46% Nitrogen, is a solid nitrogen fertilizer product most widely used in the World.

This kind of fertilizer also called 46-0-0 for its NPK content (actually N, P2O5 and K20 or nitrogen, phosphate and potash, respectively).

Granular Urea, is a single-element fertilizer, that supplies the major essential element nitrogen in ammonic form (NH+). There are two forms of nitrogen that can be absorbed by plants and trees: NO3- and NH+. Granular urea is the richest source of Nitrogen (NH+). It is a cost-effective form of Nitrogen that can significantly reduce input costs. Granular urea is applied early in the growing season when soil is moist and temperatures are warm. Losses can be reduced by rapid incorporation of it into the soil by applying before rain and using low rate applications 40kg per ha. Urea requires moisture to work and should not be used on very dry land or during the summer months.

“B Grade” Granular Urea 46% in Turkmenistan:

MEB Trade and Logistics Limited commonly exports “B Grade” Granular Urea from Turkmenistan, since Turkmenistan is one of the richest countries in terms of natural gas reserves. It makes the production of Granular Urea even profitable comparing to other countries.

The production of Granular Urea in Turkmenistan belongs to the State-owned company, State Concern “Turkmenhimiya” (translated as “Turkmenchemistry”) and it has 3 (three) Granular Urea producing plants:

  1. Tejenkarbamid plant (translated as “Tejenurea plant”)
  2. Marykarbamid plant (translated as “Maryurea plant”)
  3. Garabogazkarbamid plant (translated as “Garabogazurea plant”)

Tejenkarbamid plant.

Tejen is a city in Ahal Province of Turkmenistan and the Construction of the Urea plant was initiated in 2001 and was put into service in 2006 as the first fertilizer production plant of Turkmenistan.The plant has an annual production capacity of 350.000 tons of Granular Urea. The urea plant meets the fertilizer needs of the agricultural lands in Turkmenistan to a large extent and makes a great contribution to the development of national agriculture as well as to national economy.

Markarbamid plant.

The name of the plant “Mary” also comes from a city in Mary Province of Turkmenistan.The solemn opening ceremony of a large gas chemical complex for the production of another nitrogen fertilizer ammonia and urea production plant commissioned constructed by Japanese-Turkish consortium of Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd, Sojitz Corporation and Ronesans Endustri Tesisleri. The complex worth more than 1 billion USD annually produces 400,000 tons of Ammonia and 640,000 tons of Granular Urea.

Garabogazkarbamid plant.

Garabogaz (former name “Bekdash”) is a city in Turkmenistan, part of the Balkan Province. The construction of the Urea and Ammonia plant, occupying a territory of 60 hectares, began in December 2014 in accordance with the Framework Agreement signed by the State Concern “Turkmenhimiya” with a consortium consisting of the Japanese company Mitsubishi Corporation and the Turkish Gap Inshaat Yatirim ve Dis Ticaret AS. The processing of natural gas into Ammonia will be carried out according to the technology of Haldor Topsoe AS (Denmark) and UOP (USA), urea synthesis will be carried out according to the technology of the Italian company Saipem, followed by granulation using the technology of Uhde Fertilizer (the Netherlands). The urea plant produces 1,155,000 tons of urea and 640,000 tons of ammonia per year. The daily output is 3,500 tons.
