International technology Group ANDRITZ and the ECOPHOS GROUP, a global player active in the phosphate industry, have signed a cooperation agreement for the supply of tailor-made filtration systems for ECOPHOS’ patented production processes. ANDRITZ SEPARATION, one of the world’s leading suppliers for solid/liquid separation, will supply customized press and vacuum belt filters to ECOPHOS that further enhance the performance, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of ECOPHOS’ patented processes.

“ANDRITZ SEPARATION is very proud of this cooperation agreement with ECOPHOS.

ANDRITZ and ECOPHOS consider this cooperation agreement to be the start of a long-lasting business relationship between the two companies that is expected to lead to further innovations and development of new filtration methods for the phosphates industry.
