Evonik has entered into an agreement to supply blueSulfate, a liquid ammonium sulphate (8-0-0-9) solution from its site in Mobile, Alabama, to Interoceanic Corporation (IOC).
This agreement supports Evonik’s strategy to focus on its core business in animal nutrition by marketing high-value co-products of its methionine production network for fertilizing crops via IOC. Interoceanic is a marketer of fertilizer and industrial chemicals with a terminal network and multi-modal transportation fleet in North America, linking producers and end users.
This joint effort allows Evonik to bring nitrogen fertilizer to the market that meets the needs of U.S. farmers, contributing to the circularity of macronutrients in agriculture. Evonik manufactures liquid ammonium sulfate (8-0-0-9) solution and a potassium-based fertilizer, AgraLi, as co-products of its methionine production.
Evonik is active in more than 100 countries around the world.
