WINTER GARDEN, Fla., Nov. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Anuvia Plant Nutrients® today announced an agreement with PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhad (PCG) to market and produce Anuvia’s bio-based fertilizer technology in the Asia-Pacific region. This marks a significant advancement in deploying Anuvia’s technology across the globe.
This partnership aims to assist PCG’s venture into the sustainable fertilizer segment and contribute to its overall goal to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. For Anuvia, it opens its technology to one of the world’s largest agricultural markets.
“This agreement is a good example of how the Anuvia technology can be used to improve nutrient management around the world” said Amy Yoder, CEO, Anuvia Plant Nutrients. “Working with PETRONAS, we can make immediate, significant impacts on food security and soil health, all while decreasing the environmental footprint of agriculture.”
According to an environmental audit conducted by Environmental Resources Management [ERM], Anuvia’s impact is substantial: for every million acres of crops that use Anuvia’s products, the reduction of greenhouse gases is the equivalent of removing up to 30,000 cars from the roads in perpetuity.
“PCG is excited to be a part of this journey towards improving farmers’ income and global food security. Tailored to the Asia Pacific market, Agrenas OEF™ meets the growing demands of the industry players and crop growers alike.
