2011 yr. - Launch of a new urea production unit No.4 with project capacity of 1,000 t/day. The rest of urea units have a joint capacity of 1,300 t/day.
From 2011 yr. - Achema further developes its energy sector. Company commissioned a new 47 MW gas-fired cogeneration power plant No.2. Together with similar 21 MW plant No.1 operating from 2004, both plants can entirely supply the company with power and steam.
In 2012 yr. - Under the EU Structural Fund Programme Achema started developing a new investment project "Implementation of New Liquid and Gaseous Product Manufacturing Technologies in Achema".
In 2012 yr. - Achema develops power distribution network modernisation project co-funded by EU Structural Funds to maintain power system security. Modernization is planned to be finished by the second half of 2015.
2013 yr. - Achema completed two Joint Implementation projects, aimed to mitigate nitric acid plant greenhouse gas (nitric oxide) emissions by more than 85%.
2013 yr. - Achema started the second Grande Paroisse type nitric acid production unit project. By 2015, the project will increase annual nitric acid production by 240 thousand tonnes.
2013 yr. - Auxiliary steam boiler burners in ammonia plant No. 2 were changed to optimize steam production. The project was partially funded by the EU Structural Funds.
2013 yr. - Start of ammonia plant No. 2 reconstruction. The project is also aimed to reduce energy resource consumption.
2014 yr. - AdBlue production and warehouse extension was completed.
2015 yr. - In April the modernization of the power distribution network was completed co financed by EU Structural Funds.
2015 yr. - In September modern air separation unit started up, in which a gaseous pure nitrogen, gaseous technical oxygen, liquid argon, nitrogen and oxygen are produced.
2015 yr. - In November a new Grand Paroisse design of nitric acid unit started up. It will increase the annual nitric acid production capacity by 240 thousand tons per year and will enable the company to reduce energy costs.
2015 yr. - In order to further reduce natural gas consumption in the production of ammonia, ammonia plant No. 1 process condensate scheme reconstruction was implemented and designing of further plant modernization began.
