On November 29, 2017, an agreement was signed for co-financing POIR.01.02.00-00-0061_17 under the Smart Growth Operational Program entitled "Development of a technology for obtaining potassium thiosulphate using exhaust gases from the sulfuric acid production installation and multi-component liquid fertilizers based on it" for the consortium consisting of: Grupa Azoty "Puławy" SA and Grupa Azoty "Fosfory" Sp. z o. o
The goal of the project is the development of technology for the production of potassium thiosulphate using exhaust gases from the sulfuric acid production plant and the production technology of liquid fertilizers based on potassium thiosulphate.
The end result The project will develop an innovative technology for the production of liquid fertilizer using exhaust gases at optimal operational conditions. The implementation of the technology will allow the production of an innovative on a national scale liquid fertilizer based on a potassium thiosulphate solution. Moreover, the visible effect of the implementation will be the reduction of emissions of sulfur and nitrogen compounds to the atmosphere.
