Science Behind Technology

On the occasion of World Fertilizer Day, Desmet Ballestra introduces Fertilizer Technologies 2.0

Ammoniak Reaktor 1913 Oppau retuschiertEvery year on October 13th, we celebrate the Global Fertilizer Day. We believe that the invention of the electric motors, the car, even the container are real turning points for the mankind. As a matter of fact, we owe much of our prosperity to the start-up of the Haber Bosch reactor for the production of ammonia form hydrogen and nitrogen. That was the birth of the modern fertilizer industry and the mainspring for an unprecedented growth in health and in population. The word fertilizer day remembers that event.

Time passed, new problems arose and different horizons and challenges are waiting us. Global warming and pollution are putting our lives at stake, and  full commitment of companies and individuals is essential to tackle such issues.
