Safety comes first at Algol Chemicals Kvarntorp operations


Our facilities in Kvarntorp serve both as a production site and a terminal for chemicals. We hold a Seveso classification due to its primary function of handling anhydrous ammonia. The site is involved in filling various containers and cylinders with anhydrous ammonia for distribution.

Additionally, we manufacture and distribute ammonia solutions. Kvarntorp also offers ISCC PLUS certified Standard ammonia and the ammonia solution, both qualities with a significantly reduced CO₂ footprint. More information about ISCC PLUS certified Standard ammonia and ammonia solution in our article.

"At the Kvarntorp production site, safety is consistently our top priority. We recognise the significance of maintaining a secure environment for our customers, partners and carriers", says Johan Molin, Site Manager.

"Ensuring the safest handling of our products is equally crucial to us - from our facility to the end user, across the entire supply chain. To achieve this commitment, we provide training on the safe handling of products and conduct inspections at customer sites", Molin says.

Pre-inspection offered before the first delivery

Since the handling of ammonia is identified as one of the chemicals with the highest risk, we offer our customers a pre-inspection/audit before the first delivery at their premises.

We follow the Cefic guidelines in the pre-inspection aiming to guarantee the safety of both our customers and the transport drivers responsible for unloading.

Continuous trainings available

You can count on our continuous support and expertise. We propose our customers the following trainings and equipments among others:

- Instructions for safe handling of our tanks and cylinders
