Koch Agronomic Services, LLC (KAS) has launched N-TEGRATION Technology, a process technology platform designed to enable production of enhanced efficiency fertilizers at urea manufacturing facilities. N-TEGRATION Technology is now available for license to global fertilizer manufacturers that qualify. This branded technology platform offers producers the ability to integrate proprietary additives into the urea prilling or granular manufacturing process. This creates homogeneous, enhanced efficiency fertilizers which shield against nitrogen loss through volatilization and nitrification for above and below ground protection.
N-TEGRATION Technology is a proprietary platform for urea manufacturers that want to differentiate themselves by producing value-added products, committing to best practices and placing a priority on quality in their nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing and product offerings. The platform enables production of higher valued products designed to thrive in an ever-increasing regulatory and competitive landscape.
Producers who qualify will benefit from a program that works in close relationship with their quality and branding efforts to promote their product brand and the N-TEGRATION Technology manufacturing process in a clear and confident manner. The following additional components are provided to ensure a successful licensing experience:
• Technology Transfer
