|Urea is the most commonly used nitrogen
fertilizer. In addition to being used as fertilizers,
urea products also have industrial applications,
such as used as raw materials for urea-formaldehyde
resins and melamine production and feed for hydrolysis
to form ammonia. It also serves as an ingredient
in complex fertilizers and fertilizer blends, etc.
Urea products are divided into granular urea and
traditional prill urea according to their different
physical and processing properties.
|The granular urea is mainly produced
in Fudao. The designed annual production capacity
of Fudao Phase I is 520,000 tonnes and the designed
|capacity of Fudao Phase II is 800,000 tonnes.
We utilize our anti-agglomerate chemical technology for
our production at Fudao Phase I and Fudao Phase II to
improve the durability of our granular urea products so
that they are less likely to crumble and to prevent clumping
of the granules. Our granular urea products dissolve at
slower rates than traditional urea prills and thus offer
more cost-effective application. We believe that we are
able to charge a premium for our granular urea over traditional
prill products due to the following properties:
A reduced injurious biuret level and moisture concentration;
An increased endurance towards crushing and impact and
decreased dust content and possibility of caking;
A decrease in urea loss attributable to the large granularity
and slow-release property, thus substantially reducing
the nitrogen loss due to the nitration effect and significantly
increasing the nitrogen absorption.
Our granular urea products, carrying the 'Fudao' brand,
are sold in Hainan Province and many other regions in
China. They have received awards from various PRC Government
agencies and trade associations in recognition of their
quality, including being named 'Hainan’s Premium and New
Product' by the Hainan Provincial Government in 1997,
'National Key New Products' by the Ministry of Science
and Technology in 1998, 'Recommended Product' by China
Agriculture Association in 1999, 'Certificate For Exemption
From Product Quality Examination' by the National Quality
and Technology Supervision Bureau in 2001, 'Hainan’s Well-
Known Product' and 'Hainan’s Award For Quality Control'
by the Hainan Provincial Government in 2002 and 2003,
respectively. 'Fudao' products are also exported to Japan,
South East Asia, Australia, Korea and the U.S.. testifying
to their competitiveness in the international market.
|It is mainly produced by our Tianye production
facilities using traditional granulation method at up
to 520,000 tonnes a year. The prill urea products are
widely used as crop fertilizers, and are particularly
suitable for crops with shorter harvest cycles.Our 'Tianye'
prill urea products enjoy brand prominence in Inner Mongolia,
North and East-northern China. In 2005, Tianye Chemical
started using natural gas as production fuel to replace
petroleum, which significantly enhanced its production
efficiency, and allowed it to strengthen product quality
and increaing the competitiveness of urea products.
