The Macedonian company is producing mineral fertilizers in liquid and crystal form and provides a range of solutions for using dolomite mineral as fertilizer in agriculture.The company is involved in production of various mineral artificial fertilizers, both in liquid and crystal form.
The expected annual production of the plant would be 3.500 tons. The fertilizers are supplied by natural sources Dolomite. The main advantage of this Dolomite is its granulation, since its raw form is not a rock, but natural sand with average size of 180 microns (3-450 microns). The composition of Dolomit is CaO- 30.26%, MgO 21.05%. The required rate between magnesium and other elements present in the natural source is obtained by surface and pit digging and separation and technological elimination of some elements. The company also prepares development program for production of Magnesium-Sulphate-Anhydrous & Calcium- Magnesium-Nitrate-Anhydrous from dolomite mineral.
