Stronger Together: 10-Year Anniversary of Stamicarbon & Maire Tecnimont

Maire Tecnimont acquired urea technology licensor Stamicarbon from DSM in 2009. Over the past 10 years, Stamicarbon has been fully integrated as the Innovation and License Company of the Maire Tecnimont Group. The 10-year anniversary was recently celebrated with an event at Limbricht Castle in the Netherlands in attendance of Stamicarbon employees, the management of both companies and other senior representatives from Maire Tecnimont.
Looking back on the past 10 years, both companies have benefited significantly from the resulting collaboration. It enabled Maire Tecnimont to become a world leader in the technology for urea production, as more than 250 urea plants worldwide use Stamicarbon’s technology. It also reinforced the group’s identity as one of the key players as a technology licensor and an EPC contractor for fertilizer plants. Stamicarbon was able to broaden its value proposition thanks to effective synergies with the group’s sister companies, while leveraging on Maire Tecnimont’s network to expand its international footprint.
“The technological attitude and innovation DNA of Stamicarbon was certainly an added value for the group and has become a key element of recent group developments,” Fabrizio Di Amato, Chairman and Founder of Maire Tecnimont said, adding that “the group currently owns more than 1400 patents and has four R & D centers. The next step to further foster innovation was made by the establishment of NextChem.” According to Pejman Djavdan, CEO of Stamicarbon, “in order to keep feeding the growing population, we will focus, together with the group, on a sustainable intensification of agriculture with fertilizers. This means that production of fertilizers needs to be optimized to have less impact on the environment and to be based on renewable energy sources.”
