Yara restarts production in Ferrara
Jan 22, 2009
Yara has started preparations to restart Yara Ferrara following improved market conditions. Start up of the urea and ammonia plants is expected during February.
The Ferrara facility transforms natural gas into ammonia and urea, which are the main components in the production of nitrogen fertilizers and chemicals. The site has an annual production capacity of 600,000 tons of ammonia and 550,000 tons of urea.
The decision to restart production is related to the general improvements in the international urea markets and the specific situation in Italy with increased seasonal demand.
