A Proven Track Record in Agrochemicals

GEA has provided innovative solutions in the agrochemicals sector for more than 60 years. We combine our extensive expertise in evaporation, crystallization, drying, and granulation, with research and development, to generate added value with respect to both process and production.

Comprehensive and innovative solutions


From R&D to commercial scale, GEA offers complete solutions to meet your specific product requirements.

GEA’s expertise in the agrochemicals sector has been harnessed around the world, from the Atacama desert of Chile to the European sylvinite and carnallite mines, and from the dead sea in the near East to caprolactam and methyl methacrylate facilities in Asia and North America. Our technologies can be applied to a wide range of products, including: ammonium salts, pesticides, copper derivatives, zinc and magnesium compounds, urea, potassium chloride, potassium sulfate, and potassium nitrate for the potash fertilizer market.

We offer a wide range of plant technologies, including evaporators, crystallizers, spray dryers and fluid beds for agglomeration/granulation. These have been developed to meet specific requirements in areas such as free-flowing characteristics, powder granulometry, low dust levels and redispersion parameters.

GEA also provides solutions for the recovery of by-products from waste streams, and for reactive crystallisation (for example, to produce granular ammonium sulfate from spent sulfuric acid and ammonia).
