EuroChem at a glance

We are one of the largest agrochemical companies in the world. our business is underpinned by the unrelenting need to produce and deliver the primary nutrients needed to help the world grow.

Our main activities are the production of nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers, to which we soon plan to add potash. We are investing in deepening our vertical integration while expanding our global reach to help us achieve our vision.

We measure our success by our ability to create best in class products to help our customers improve crop yields.

Our four reporting segments* are nitrogen, Phosphates, Potash, and Distribution, which we use to measure and communicate our results and performance.

  • * Note: EuroChem Agro results are included in the Nitrogen segment. The Distribution segment only represents sales carried out by our CIS distribution network.

Nitrogen is a key constituent of the proteins essential for plant growth. Our nitrogen assets are at the core of EuroChem, with close to half of our revenues derived from nitrogen-based fertilizers.

Our nitrogen facilities in Russia and Belgium currently have a combined annual production capacity of close to ten million tonnes per year. We also produce gas condensate and natural gas, which is the main raw material for the production of ammonia and subsequent production of nitrogen-based fertilizers. Furthermore, the sale of gas condensate to third parties allows us to offset a portion of our natural gas costs.

Phosphates help increase the strength of the root system of plants and improve their drought resistance.

Our phosphates segment encompasses the production and sale of phosphate mineral fertilizers and feed phosphates, as well as the extraction and subsequent sale of iron ore concentrate and baddeleyite concentrate, co-products of phosphate rock raw material mining operations. As well as providing a considerable credit to apatite mining costs, these co-products help mitigate the volatility in fertilizer pricing.

Along with nitrogen and phosphate, potash is one of the three key plant nutrients. It helps improve the nutrient value, taste, texture, and crop disease resistance.

Development of greenfield potash projects in Russia’s two largest deposits, the Gremyachinskoe deposit in the Volgograd region (EuroChem-VolgaKaliy) and the Verkhnekamskoe deposit (Usolskiy Potash) in the Perm region. Once on stream, the two mining and processing sites will have a combined annual output of eight million tonnes of KCl.
