At the nutrition and energy crossroads

Summary

A new report from trade body Fertilizers Europe explains how industry can supply enough crop nutrients to feed a growing population, while also becoming ever more energy- and environmentally-efficient. Fertilizer producers can also help address other challenges, such as the growing demand for cleaner energy and better resource use, as Jacob Hansen, the director general of Fertilizers Europe, explains.

Abstract

We live in fascinating times, with technology evolving at an ever-increasing pace, spurring major shifts in many sectors. This is certainly true of the fertilizer industry. As we look ahead, the future of agriculture in Europe faces two major challenges: how to shift to sustainable food production; and help deliver EU commitments on decarbonisation and a more circular economy.

Nitrogen market rallies – but will it last?

Summary

Nitrogen prices outperformed expectations in 2018, following a year of widespread disruption and uncertainty, reports Laura Cross, CRU's head of nitrogen analysis.

Abstract

Urea prices, against expectations, were buoyant in 2018. Supply management policies in China and the re-imposition of US sanctions on Iran helped offset the adverse impact of new urea capacity additions. Collectively, such factors contributed to a $31/t average increase in urea prices in 2018 compared to the previous year.

Florida: centre of excellence

Summary

Florida's phosphate industry is supported by a cluster of world-class companies. Our US correspondent, Mark Evans, profiles the sunshine state's innovative and outward-looking phosphate sector and reveals its recipe for global success.

Abstract

Florida’s pre-eminence as a phosphate-producing region dates back to the industry’s earliest days. Phosphate rock deposits near Hawthorne in Alachua County were the first to be mined in 1883. The discovery of exceptionally large phosphate reserves in Florida during the late 19th century came at a time when agriculture was also of increasing importance to the state’s burgeoning economy.

EcoPhos heads east

Summary

EcoPhos and its Chinese joint venture partner Guizhou Chanhen are collaborating on the Chaneco phosphate project in Guangxi province. The aim is build an innovative, high-tech and eco-friendly phosphate production plant, explains Mohamed Takhim, the founder and CEO of Ecophos.

Abstract

Belgium’s EcoPhos S.A. has launched a joint venture (JV) to construct and operate a new phosphates plant in China. The new plant – the first of its kind in China – is being built near Nanning, Guangxi province, and will use innovative and eco-friendly proprietary technology developed by EcoPhos.

North Africa: phosphates powerhouse

Summary

North Africa is to the world's phosphate industry what the Middle East is to oil & gas. The region has developed its large share of world phosphate rock reserves to emerge as a globally important production and export hub. We report on the state of the phosphate sector in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia.

Abstract

The Maghreb countries north of the Sahara, and their close neighbour Egypt, have emerged as a major regional phosphate-producing hub. Their influence on the global phosphate market is increasing, thanks to the vast scale of their phosphate reserves, massive investment in new production capacity, and their relative proximity to strongly-growing markets in Africa and Latin America, and the mature but sizeable European market.

Tight supply supports bullish producers

Summary

Prices look set to increase in the global potash market, with availability scarce and as expected new capacity fails to materialise, reports Andy Hemphill, potash and sulphuric acid markets editor at ICIS Fertilizers.

Abstract

However you look at it, 2019 will be a tough year for potash ­buyers. Between increasing demand, production discipline, outages, and the delayed ramp-up of new capacity, supplies of this vital fertilizer will remain limited for much of the year.

The water-soluble phosphate market

Summary

Demand from horticulture has seen the use of water-soluble phosphates rise globally to almost one million tonnes annually. We assess the market and its growth prospects, identify leading producers and highlight recent product innovations.

Abstract

Water-soluble fertilizers (WSFs) are a niche group of speciality products that nevertheless occupy a strongly growing segment of the global fertilizer market. Worth more than $12 billion currently, the world market for WSFs is expanding at around eight percent annually.
