Stamicarbon, the innovation and license company of Maire Tecnimont Group, is to license the technology for a grassroots urea plant for Talcher Fertilizers Ltd in India. The new ammonia and urea complex will be a modern facility that will mark the revival of urea production in the state of Odisha, Angul district, in eastern India.

The project marks Stamicarbon's re-entry into the Indian market after more than 40 years.

Stamicarbon will deliver the process design package for a 3850 tpd melt and prilling plant. The urea melt plant will feature Stamicarbon’s pool condenser design and the complete synthesis section will be carried out in Safurex® stainless steel.

The commissioning of the plant is expected in 2023.

The role of fertilizers, especially urea, is paramount for meeting the growing food requirements of India. The Indian government is putting great efforts in increasing the availability of domestically produced urea and therefore has started the revival of several closed units. The erstwhile urea facility of Fertilizer Corporation of India (FCIL) in Talcher is one of them. A new JV company Talcher Fertilizers Ltd is formed which will own the new ammonia and urea production facility in Talcher. This project will improve India's self-sufficiency in urea production, promote agriculture growth and increase the reliability of urea availability to farmers of Odisha in particular and India in general.
