Cuba's Geominera del Centro firm aims at substituting imports
Santa Clara, Oct 30 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's Geominera del Centro company has produced over 11,700 tons of zeolite for the Cuban fertilizer industry, aimed at substituting imports.
The production of 4,000 tons of Agromena stands out, an organic-mineral product based on zeolite, phosphoric rock, calcium carbonate and residual compost from the sugar industry, all of domestic production, very satisfactory in the development of agricultural crops within the country's food program.
Jesus Argelio Abad, director of the Geominera del Centro company, located in Villa Clara province, highlighted here on Friday that 17,300 tons of carbonate have also been produced so far for the production of animal feed, among other manufacturing that replace imports.
Abad said that high volumes of Fertisol have also been achieved, the use of which reduces the use of chemical fertilizers in agriculture by around 20 percent, improves soil conditions and increases its water properties.
The director also indicated that the links with different schools of the Marta Abreu de Las Villas Central University have been commendable at this stage, among which the Construction Department stands out, whose alliances have made possible the joint production of low-carbon cement.
