Anuvia Plant Nutrients entered into an agreement with Petronas Chemicals Group Berhad (PCG) to market and produce Anuvia’s bio-based fertilizer technology in the Asia-Pacific region.

Anuvia will be bringing a second production line into operation in Anuvia’s Plant City, Florida (U.S.) facility, scaling from its current capacity of 400,000 tons to 800,000 by 2024. Anuvia’s SymTRX products is a bio-based granular fertilizer engineered to increase nutrient availability to the plant while contributing to improved soil health.

With a total combined production capacity of 12.8 million metric tons per annum, it is involved primarily in manufacturing, marketing and selling a range of chemical products, including olefins, polymers, fertilizers, methanol and other basic chemicals and derivative products.
