Urea-Es<sup>®</sup>

Urea-ES®

. . . a mixture between Urea and elemental sulphur.

Why does Urea-ES® help boost crop yields?

The increased use of sulfur-free fertilizers, intensified cropping systems and reduced sulfur dioxide emissions have resulted in a soil-sulfur deficit that is affecting crop productivity worldwide. In 2015 experts estimated that 10 million tons of sulfur needed to be added to soil to address this sulfur deficiency and increase crop yields.

Urea granules are an ideal carrier for sulfur.

Urea-ES® offers

  • a high oxidation rate in the soil and availability for plant nutrition at the right time of the growing phase

  • an easily adjustable sulphur content (up to 20wt%)

Urea-ES® is an excellent opportunity to extend product portfolio with a competitive high quality product which increases plant growth, improves soil conditions and generates additional yields. These additional yields will help to overcome increasing global food shortage.

How can Urea-ES® be produced?

With easy plant modification and integration of the Urea-ES® production route into an existing UFT® Fluid Bed Granulation Plant and in a new plant concept right from the beginning of engineering.

By integrating the Shell Thiogro® technology into our UFT® Fluid Bed Granulation process micro-particles of elemental sulfur can be included into urea to form Urea-ES® granules.

What do you get?

  • A very hard Bulk product with excellent storage and handling conditions

  • A fully integrated Urea-ES® process into an existing UFT® Fluid Bed Granulation plant with low investment cost
