Methanol Holdings Trinidad Limited is building a $1.7bn ammonia, urea, ammonium nitrate and melamine (AUM) complex in Trinidad, West Indies.
The 2,000mt/d ammonia plant, built as part of the first phase of the complex and in operation since May 2009, will provide the feedstock for urea, ammonium nitrate 32 solution (UAN 32) and melamine.
The integrated petrochemical complex will produce 1.48 million mt/y of UAN, and 60,000mt/y of melamine, according to jamaica-gleaner.com.
The facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2009.
UAN is used as a fertiliser for all crops, and melamine is used in the manufacture of resins, mouldings, laminates and furniture.
