2020 Cucchiella Stamicarbon Scaling up granulation plants

Finishing technologies have been used on a large scale for a long time. Changing markets and business situations, stricter environmental requirements and legislation are all drivers for continuously innovating finishing processes.

At the moment, the demand growth of urea is about 1.5% per year, which equates to 2-3 granulation plants per year. The choice to go for a granulated product instead of a prilled product is mainly due to export reasons. Granules made by fluid bed granulation technology offer better strength, handling and shipping capabilities compared with a prilled product. Therefore, the construction of urea granulation plants is often found in countries with low feedstock cost areas, allowing for the export of the granulated product.
