TOGLIATTIAZOT BECAME THE LARGEST SUPPLIER OF UREA TO THE RUSSIAN MARKET
In 2019 PJSC TOAZ (Togliattiazot), one of the leaders in producing ammonia in Russia, also became the largest supplier of urea to the agricultural market of the Russian Federation.
According to the results of 2019, the company's share in the market of this mineral fertilizer of the Russian Federation amounted to more than 38% (data by the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service of the Russian Federation). The quantity of shipments of urea production of TOAZ to the Russian market amounted to 274 thou. tons (in 2018 - 250.9 thou. tons.)
Last year, TOAZ rapidly developed the supplies to the domestic market, offering high-quality products in accordance with the needs of the agricultural sector. This was facilitated by an increase in production (urea production in 2019 amounted to 784.6 thou. tons, becoming a record high result for the past twelve years).
The company is constantly improving its production capacity, taking into account the growing demand in the domestic market. As a part of a strategic modernization program with the value of more than 47.5 bn rubles Togliattiazot keeps upgrading its urea production units. Completed works have ensured uninterrupted operation of both units, increased equipment reliability in accordance with the actual requirements in industrial and environmental safety. The third unit with a capacity of 2.2 thou. tons per day is also under construction; its commissioning is planned for 2021.
In the long-term strategy of the company until 2025, a further increase in the production of urea is planned - more than 2.5 times, up to 2.53 million tons per year, partly through the construction of the 4th unit for the production of this product. A special place in it is given to supporting the development of the Russian agro-industrial complex, the introduction of digital technologies, improving the quality of production of mineral fertilizers and increasing the effectiveness of interaction with agricultural producers and farms.

For reference: urea (carbamide) is a chemical compound, carbonic acid diamide. In industry it is synthesized from ammonia and carbon dioxide. Urea is a highly concentrated nitrogen fertilizer. In agriculture, it is also used as an effective feed protein additive. In addition, urea is used to produce synthetic resins, plastics, adhesives, varnishes, and for refining petroleum products.
