HANOI, VIETNAM: Solvay SA said that it has signed a supply contract with PetroVietnam Camau Fertilizer Company Limited (PVCFC). For 4 years, PVCFC will get an exclusive access in Vietnam to Solvay breakthrough eco-friendly nitrogen stabilizer AgRho N-Dual Protect.

PVCFC selected AgRho N-Dual Protect after a series of successful field trials of Solvay’s proprietary and patented range of innovative and eco-friendly nitrogen stabilizers. PVCFC is the leading enterprise in Vietnam and the region in the sector of producing and trading fertilizer and chemicals serving agriculture and oil and gas industry.

AgRho N-Dual Protect is the newest innovation in Solvay’s range of innovative and eco-friendly nitrogen stabilizers. It is the first liquid formulation combining NBPT (N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide) urease inhibitor and DCD (dicyandiamide) nitrification inhibitor to enhance performance and sustainability over other nitrogen stabilizers. AgRho N-Dual Protect increases crop yield up to 20 percent while demonstrating improved air and water quality and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions due to nitrogen fertilizers.

The use of nitrogen-containing fertilizer has increased dramatically in recent years to satisfy the world’s need for food. The amount of nitrogen supplied is critical to the overall quality and growth of the crops. However, from an economic and an environmental point of view, there is a clear need to improve nitrogen use efficiency.

“The contract with PVCFC is an opportunity for Solvay to improve agricultural productivity and to positively impact the environment in Vietnam. Solvay innovative and eco-friendly technology is substantially better for the health and environment than comparable products. It is easy to use and delivers a high productivity,” said Valdirene Licht, vice president and general manager of Solvay Novecare Asia Pacific.

“The environmental profile of Solvay technology is aligned with PVCFC’s mission toward finding innovative nutrition solutions for crops that will contribute to steering the agriculture sector toward sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions. We believe this contract will improve crop yield and quality and will contribute to increasing the competitiveness of Vietnam agricultural products” added Bui Minh Tien, CEO of PVCFC.
