KuibyshevAzot wants to produce nitrogen fertilizers at the Kurskkhimvolokno plant
Kurskkhimvolokno plant (part of KuibyshevAzot) is working on the project to create a production of nitrogen fertilizers from natural gas. The Governor of the Kursk region, Roman Starovoit, held a meeting to discuss the implementation of the project.
“This project is of significant interest to the Kursk region in terms of providing new jobs and developing the economy of the region. We’ve chosen Kurskkhimvolokno plant to locate mineral fertilizer production, since the enterprise observes the ecological regulations and has long been using technologies for the production of products from gas,” noted the Governor.
The project requires significant government support in terms of the construction of the gas pipeline branch and the reduction of tariffs for the supply of natural gas and rail transportation.
The representative of KuibyshevAzot reported that the documents necessary for approval of natural gas prices with Gazprom would be ready by the end of 2020. After that, the possibility of the construction of a high-pressure gas pipeline with a length of 23 km should also be resolved.
Following the meeting, Roman Starovoit instructed to assist the investor in receiving benefits and preparing the site to locate future production. It may be launched at the Kurskkhimvolokno plant in 2023.
