Calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN), or nitrochalk, refers to a water-soluble fertilizer that comprises a mixture of calcium nitrate and ammonium nitrate. It is an inorganic chemical compound that appears white or pale yellow with a solid and granular appearance. Compared to the traditionally used ammonium nitrate, it is a safer substitute and more stable, as the presence of calcium adds an agronomic advantage. It is commonly employed as a nitrogen fertilizer to neutralize acidic soil and supply rich amounts of nitrogen for proper plant growth. As a result, CAN finds extensive applications in the agriculture, pharmaceuticals, water treatment, chemical, and explosive industries across the globe.

Innovations and Emerging Opportunities in the Calcium Ammonium Nitrate Industry:

  • The top companies in the calcium ammonium nitrate industry are focusing on research and development (R&D) activities to develop highly efficient and innovative product variants. 
  • They are offering novel CAN variants with enhanced nitrogen and calcium content for better crop growth and yield.
  • Besides this, the introduction of new technologies for manufacturing CAN is offering lucrative growth opportunities to the key players.
