Russia to build a mineral fertilizer plant in Kazakhstan

Russia and Kazakhstan have entered into an agreement that includes the construction and further use in Kazakhstan of an enterprise that will produce mineral fertilisers.

The document was signed by Denis Manturov, head of The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, and Yermek Kosherbayev, Kazakhstan's ambassador to Russia.

It is about the implementation of the project of the mineral and chemical company EuroChem, which involves the development of phosphate deposits in the Karatau phosphate basin in southern Kazakhstan and the creation of a new plant.

According to the head of the industrial department of our country Denis Manturov, after the implementation of the project will significantly expand the existing production, as well as the transition to the beginning of the plant, which will produce a minimum of 1 million tons of mineral fertilizers and industrial products annually. The new plant will use the latest technologies in the chemical industry.

According to him, the construction is planned to be completed in 2025. The plant will be supplied with potassium chloride from Russia and will use Russian energy and mining equipment worth about $50 million. The products manufactured at the plant will be sold not only in Kazakhstan, but also exported to China and a number of countries in Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

One of the main features of the plant under construction will be that there will be no waste in the form of phosphogypsum. This will have a significant impact on the efficiency of natural resource use and will preserve the region's ecology.

At the end of last month, it became known that Russia had localized the production of combines in Kazakhstan. Now grain in this country will be harvested on TORUM 750 combine harvesters. These machines were harvested at an industrial site in the Kazakh city of Kokshetau by specialists from the two countries.
