The total global demand for ammonium sulfate is approximately 24 million metric tons. A number that is still growing and of which 10% is produced, distributed and supplied by Fibrant.
Ammonium Sulfate is a solid, crystalline salt that is mainly used as a fertilizer, providing both nitrogen and sulfur for crop production. Sulfur is one of the major macronutrients. Sulfur is essential for plant growth and nutrition, and sulfur can increase both the quality and yield in crop production resulting in improved economic benefit to farmers. Additionally sulfur can increase both the quality and protein content of forages. Adequate sulfur in crop nutrition is necessary for crops to fully utilize other important nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus.
Industrial ammonium sulfate applications include flame retardants, cellulosic insulation, leather tanning, laminate hardening, persulfate production, metal purification and textile dyeing.
Technical ammoniumsulfate applications include sausage casing production, yeast production, (potable) water treatment, feed enhancer and a range of other food and pharma applications.
Spray grade ammonium sulfate is used to improve the performance of liquid herbicide mixes for weed/grass control.
Fibrant is an expert in the field of ammonium sulfate technology and leads the development of new production methods of crystallized granular ammonium sulfate for dry blended fertilizers worldwide. Our ammonium sulfate supplies sulfur in the purest sulfate form, which is readily available for rapid crop utilization.
