Garabogazkarbamid plant, the large urea and ammonia plant in the city of Garabogaz in Turkmenistan’s western province of Balkan, produced more than 565.9 thousand tons of urea in the first half of 2022.
The six-month production of the plant is significantly more compared to the same period last year, the country’s official media reported on Saturday.
Garabogazkarbamid plant of Türkmenhimiýa (Turkmen Chemicals) State Concern is designed to annually produce 1.155 million tons of urea and 660 thousand tons of synthetic ammonia. Natural gas is the main raw material of the plant.
Abdykerim Habybov, the operator of the urea workshop of the plant, said “the local raw material resources used in the production process significantly reduce the cost of production.”
Last year, the plant produced more than 989.1 thousand tons of urea fertilizer and 570.4 thousand tons of liquid ammonia.
