Nitrogénművek restarts ammonia production
After a one-month shutdown, Nitrogénművek has restarted ammonia production in order to meet the strong export demand at the end of the artificial fertilizer season, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
"Thanks to our experienced colleagues, the restart was a success and as of today, 4,400 tonnes of finished product will be coming off the production lines in Pétfürdő every day, while the summer season will be a busy one, with great challenges for the industry, due to the expected high energy prices," said Eszter Fábry, CEO of the company.
The company's management is confident that the missing, last-minute procurements in domestic agriculture will appear on the market, similarly to other European countries, and Hungary’s agricultural performance this year will not be lower than usual.
Nitrogénművek continues to monitor closely the highly volatile market environment, primarily in order to maintain the supply of nutrients needed by agriculture, but the company is also ready to reduce or stop production again if needed, according to the press release.
