General
The PhosAgro holding company was established along with the PhosAgro AG management company, which assumed the management of current production and business activities and developed the production capacities of recently acquired Apatit, Voskresensk Mineral Fertilisers and Balakovo Mineral Fertilisers. 

PhosAgro is a Russian vertically integrated company and one of the world’s leading producers of phosphate-based fertilisers. Its core line of business is the production of phosphate-based fertilisers, high-grade phosphate rock  (P2O5>35.7%), and also feed phosphates, nitrogen fertilisers and ammonia.  PhosAgro’s primary assets include Apatit, PhosAgro-Cherepovets (established as a result of the merger of Ammophos and Cherepovetsky Azot), Agro-Cherepovets, Balakovo branch of OJSC Apatit, Metachem, PhosAgro-Trans, PhosAgro-Region and NIUIF.  The Company is Europe’s largest producer of phosphate-based fertilisers, the world’s largest producer of high-grade phosphate rock and the world’s second largest producer (excluding China) of MAP and DAP (according to Fertecon), Russia’s only producer of feed monocalcium phosphate (MCP), and also the sole producer of nepheline concentrate in Russia. 

The arrangement of pollution-free production of sulphuric acid is based on shifting the production systems to “short sulphur scheme” with intensification of sulphuric acid production process due to increase of concentration of sulphur dioxide in the production gas from 8.5 to 12.0%. Due to this technology, after accomplishment of reconstruction of the production lines (in 2007), generation of slag in sulphuric acid production will be stopped at the plant. As a result, the sludge accumulators will be gradually withdrawn from operation taking into account discharge of accumulated waste and thus the pollution source will be eliminated. In the course of reconstruction in June of 2003 and in September of 2004, two new installations on production of sulphuric acid from lumpy and granulated sulphur were put into operation, resulting in reduction of generation for 220 thousand tons. Annual shipping of more than 400 tons of pyrite cinder for the needs of cement industry and reconstruction of sulphuric acid production will make it possible to considerably improve the environment due to cessation of generation of pyrite cinders.
