With over 30 years of experience, LignoStar is a dedicated long-term partner in the fertilizer additives industry. LignoStar can offer excellent technical and commercial assistance in helping fertilizer companies add value to their products.

Our sustainable fertilizer additives improve the quality and stability of fertilizers. Ranging from granule-hardness improvement to avoiding loss of nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and sulfur, our products prevent the formation of dust and caking. In addition, LignoStar products find enhanced usage to prevent the formation of lumps in fertilizers during the rainy season due to fluctuating storage temperatures, maintaining the quality of the fertilizers. By doing so, we add value throughout the fertilizer supply chain with solutions in production, handling, and blending as well as transport operations all over the world.

Performance Advantages:

The strong binding power of StarLig lignosulphonates together with their ease of use and inherent biodegradability makes them an invaluable processing aid. However, it’s important to point out that modified products also function as extremely effective anti-dust fertilizer additives in blending operations.

They will also impart the following additional benefits to the finished product.

  • Enhanced application characteristics.
  • Improved durability during storage and transport.
  • Suitability for further bulk blending.
  • Controlled / targeted release.
  • Improved uptake on soil contact.

In addition, StarLig magnesium lignosulfonates can function as a useful source of Mg, an element that is essential in the photosynthesis process as a building block for Chlorophyll. Also, it’s widely known that StarLig lignosulfonates function as urease inhibitors offering another useful characteristic to the formulation of nitrogen-based fertilizers.
