Special Program

Fertilizers and Agribusiness Seminar

Societal change is prompting new directions in the fertilizer sector. Various consequences for Nitrogen could arise from a shift towards green fertilizers driven by social trends in sustainability.

Meanwhile in the Sulphur arena, demand for higher- grade fuel driven by new IMO shipping legislation will have consequences for refineries and could impact supply and demand for products– including ammonium sulphate and sulphur-enhanced fertilizers.

Green ammonia is an attractive proposition for the environment but is this a practical solution? The viability of such investment is still questionable. Under IMO 2020 freight rates could increase significantly, which could have a potential impact on the ammonia market. Freight is already expensive for shippers and a major contribution to the cost of moving merchant ammonia, thus there may be impact on trade flows.

The Fertilizer and Agribusiness Summit half-day special program will address the changes ahead for ammonia and sulphur, and address some of the environmental issues affecting the industry going forward.

Who should attend?

  • Ammonia and downstream nitrogen producers plus industrial consumers of ammonia
  • Sulphur refineries
  • Phosphate producers reliant on both ammonia and sulphur as a raw material
