General

JSC Gomel Chemical Plant currently specializes in producing highly efficient complex fertilizers: Ammophos, Ammonized Superphosphate and nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium fertilizers of various grades.  In 2008 the company launched the production of liquid nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (NPK) fertilizers. Different grades of NPK have different K2O, P2O5 and N ratios in their chemical compound.  They are essentially a complex of basic elements needed to be introduced into the soil and, thanks to a large number of grades of fertilizers of this kind it is possible to choose the fertilizer’s optimum chemical composition to match any crop.
Nowadays, intense and stable land use is only possible through enhanced regeneration of the soil’s fertility and the environmental safety of soil-enhancing procedures. These should be aimed at achieving and maintaining optimum parameters for the soil’s principal agrochemical properties which allow for harvesting large amounts of crops and for covering the expenditures on fertilizers, as well as at warranting the appropriate level of environmental safety.
In 2009, the plant initiated the production of various grades of nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium complex fertilizers based on four basic grades: 16-16-16, 8-19-29, 8-24-24, 10-19-25. It should be noted that these fertilizers’ chemical compositions contain secondary elements (sulfur, magnesium, sodium) and microelements (boron, zinc, iron etc.). Complex fertilizers containing additives of microelements and biological agents, possess good physical properties, with their granules durability increased by 10-15% and 100%-level friability. Using these fertilizers it is possible to raise crops by 15-20% and to lower the content of nitrates, radionuclides and heavy metals in the products by 25% on average.
Aside from that, the plant produces “Anhydrous Sodium Sulfite” (of technical and photographical grades). This product is used in leatherworking, pharmaceutics, chemical and textile industry as well as for sewage treatment.

Sulfuric acid’s area of application is oil processing, metallurgy, metalworking and other industries. Sulfuric acid is also used in the production of mineral fertilizers, various mineral slats and acids, organic products and explosives (electrolyte for lead-acidic accumulators).
