productS and service
F-Chem specialises in the procurement and sales of sulphur, urea and DAP for the fertilizer, chemical and mining industries.
With the economic expansion of emerging countries such as India, China and Brazil, the demand for fertilizers and therefore sulphur and other products such as Urea and DAP has sharply risen.
Similarly the increasing demand for metals across the word has had a huge impact on the need for sulphuric acid and sulphur.
At F-Chem, we aim to leverage on our knowledge and expertise in the energy industry, as well as our established global network of local partners, to source the raw materials from sulphur rich areas and supply it to the fertilizer, chemical and mining industries.
Through its excellent trading and logistical capabilities F-Chem is an essential conduit linking producers and consumers in different parts of the world.
F-Chem's financial capabilities allow the company to enter in long term off-takes and provide financing through commodity pre-payments.

The team can boast of an in-depth knowledge of niche markets and strong transaction structuring skills as well as excellent banking relations and access to financing. We have a very strong ‘on the ground’ presence in China, India, Morocco and Brazil.
Elemental sulphur is today predominantly a by-product of the extraction of oil and gas. Sulphur is therefore found in regions such as Russia, the Middle East and North America where most of the oil and gas production is concentrated.
Oil and Gas facilities increasingly suffer from stringent regulatory constraints on sulphur stockpiling and need reliable and competent partners to address logistical, transportation and marketing issues from the production site to the end consumers.
Sulphur’s main use is in the production of sulphuric acid which is an essential material in many industrial processes including the production of phosphate fertilizers and the leaching of metal ores (copper, nickel, uranium and gold).
The strongest demand is concentrated in the emerging markets such as North Africa, Asia and Brazil where the need for fertilizers is rising.
