Jacco Korver, INSTRAL B.V, the Netherlands, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of numerous additives used by fertilizer manufacturers.

Fertilizer manufacturers strive to produce the best possible quality fertilizers in the most efficient and responsible way. In order to achieve this, additives have to be used to help processes go more smoothly and to ensure that the fertilizers can be stored, shipped and used without problems.

Examples of such additives are:

  • Corrosion inhibitors.
  • Binders and granulation additives.
  • Defoamers.
  • Coatings.
  • Colouring agents.
  • Solubilising agents.
  • Others such as talcum powders or clays.
