Can a chemical filtering technology really help feed a nation of 252,000,000 people?
Fertilizer is crucial to ensuring reliable food supplies for more than a quarter billion people in Indonesia. So when the country’s state fertilizer approached us with their goal of making the nation self-sufficient in fertilizer production, we responded.
Burdened by outdated technology and struggling to meet the production demands of a large and growing population, our customer required a superior technology. With the help of two ANDRITZ tilting pan filters, the plant made dramatic improvements in yield, energy efficiency, and total cost of ownership.
Thanks to dramatic improvements in output and energy consumption, the plant is now on target to reach an output of 200,000 tons of phosphoric acid, a crucial contribution to making Indonesia self-sufficient in agricultural fertilizer.
