Indorama Eleme Fertilizer & Chemicals Limited (IFL) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the second line of ammonia-urea plant and its associated facilities in April 2021. The construction activities of the second line started on April 2018 and completed within the project timeline. The new plant has been since operating at full capacity. With the commissioning of second line of ammonia-urea, IFL has a combined production capacity of c.8,000 metric tons per day of Granular Urea and an annual capacity of c.2.8 million metric tons making IFL the largest urea producer in Africa.
IFL’s key focus has always been to cater to the growing fertilizer demand of the domestic market in Nigeria (both for direct application and NPK blending) and also to work towards bringing a green revolution in the country. The surplus production after supplying the domestic market is exported. Nigeria offers an excellent logistical as well as seasonal advantages to best serve regional markets in West & South of Africa and South & North America. All the urea exports are handled by the captive port terminal, located 16kms from the complex, with a capacity to handle ultramax ships.
IFL’s first urea line was commissioned in June 2016 and has been operating since then. IFL’s both ammonia-urea lines were funded by IFC AFDB, European DFI’s and Commercial Banks. IFL has developed and implemented a robust stakeholder engagement plan to ensure the development benefits of the project are duly experienced by all stakeholders.
