Swiss fertilizer producer EuroChem Group AG recently opened a new, $16 million production plant for water-soluble crystalline urea phosphate in Kedainiai, Lithuania, the firm announced in a press release Friday.

Operated through a subsidiary, Lifosa, the plant has a capacity of 25,000 mt/yr of the fertilizer, expanding its product offerings. The company currently produces Diammonium Phosphate (DAP) and water-soluble chrustal Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP). 

“The new facility will further strengthen Lifosa’s position in the global fertilizer market,” Jonas Dastikas, general manager of AB Lifosa, said in a statement. “At the same time, the construction of the plant is an investment in the sustainable development of the company. We constantly aim to protect our environment by rationing the use of natural resources.”

The site also contains areas for storing raw materials and a warehouse. 

26 new positions were opened as a result of EuroChem’s project. The company initiated test production runs in September at the plant and will increase production to full capacity by the end of 2018.
