One of the largest Bulgarian fertilizer factories Neochim Plc has restarted production after being shut down for repairs for two months.

Neochim , the successor of the chemical plant in the southern town of Dimitrovgrad founded in 1951, has been fully revamped, its operational director Pavel Pavlov announced Friday, as cited by Darik Radio.

Neochim's facilities will now be able to produce 2 100 metric tons of ammonium nitrate, and 970 metric tons of ammonia in 24 hours, Pavlov explained, stressing the modernizations of the production process that have been introduced.

For the first time since it was opened in 1987 the nitric acid facility of the Neochim plant will be powered with hydrogen instead of the nitrogen and hydrogen mix previously used, he added.

The management of Neochim Plc has stated further that the company is fully prepared with its boosted capacity to meet any demands of Bulgaria's domestic and export markets.
