2009: Yara starts construction of new Netherlands Urea7 plant

On September 2, Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende and the president and CEO of Yara, Jørgen Ole Haslestad, laid the first building stone of the new Urea7 plant at Sluiskil, the Netherlands.

Yara’s new urea plant at Sluiskil will be one of the most energy-efficient in the industry. “The new plant will increase our production capacity by 50 percent and at the same time dramatically increase energy-efficiency. This is a major investment for us, and shows our commitment to the European market,” said Jørgen Ole Haslestad.

In addition to producing urea fertilizer, the new plant will also meet the growing demand for NOx abatement solutions. Urea and aqueous ammonia are both the basis for products such as Air1® and NOxCare®, which prevent emissions of NOx – a gas that leads to local pollution, e.g. smog and acid rain - from ships, vehicles and industrial plants.

The Urea7 plant is planned to be up and running from June 2011.
