Fertilizer Storage, Warehousing & Shipping
Rising demand for quality fertilizers, increased global competition, and stricter environmental health and safety (EHS) regulations are challenging the fertilizer industry to minimize dust and caking quality issues at every step in the fertilizer supply chain. These issues can be partially addressed with proper application of robust fertilizer coatings, such as anti-dust and/or anti-caking coatings at fertilizer production points. But as fertilizer ages and is abraded during subsequent handling steps, the challenge of maintaining the physical integrity of the fertilizer increases, and there is often a need for additional downstream treatments. There is also a need for blending facilities to better adhere and homogeneously mix micronutrients with macronutrient fertilizers.
