Stamicarbon will develop green technologies and inform Shchekinoazot of their potential application, while Shchekinoazot will explore the introduction of green technologies at its existing or new enterprises.
Stamicarbon recently launched Stami Green Ammonia, a technological solution for using renewable resources instead of fossil fuels to eliminate carbon from the ammonia production process and enable sustainable and green fertilizer production. The technology will be integrated in the world’s first industrial-scale plant powered by renewable energy to produce low carbon intensity nitrates, to be developed in Kenya, at the Oserian Two lakes Industrial Park 100 km north of Nairobi.
Pierroberto Folgiero, Maire Tecnimont Group CEO, commented: “Our technology licensor and innovation hub Stamicarbon is at the fore front of innovation in the fertilizer industry, and as such it is best positioned and equipped to set the pace for the development of technologies to support the energy transition. I am glad that an industry leader such as Shchekinoazot has selected Stamicarbon as the partner of choice to industrialise sustainable fertilizer production.”
Pejman Djavdan, CEO of Stamicarbon, said: “We are committed to the development of technologies for green fertilizers, decreasing the environmental footprint of fertilizer production and use. In partnership with Shchekinoazot, I’m sure we will greatly contribute to the implementation of these new technologies and intensification of sustainable agriculture.”
“The implementation of this project will ensure continuous improvement in raw materials processing and enable a shift from the consumption and export of raw materials to the high-tech production and processing of products with increased added value,” Boris Sokol, President of Shchekinoazot, said. “This project is characterised by high economic efficiency, social and budgetary relevance. Along with that, we attach greater importance to environmental issues, by minimising our environmental impact, reducing the carbon footprint of our activities and taking care of the local environment. The signed memorandum will allow us to take another step towards state-of-the-art technologies and approaches aimed at the preservation of natural diversity and a healthy planet for future generations.”
