Industrial Complexes

They are strategically located throughout the whole national territory, and generate important regional economic developments and strong exchanges with the communities where they are located. Bunge Argentina's industrial complexes operate under continuous processes, with cutting edge technology, and high quality and safety standards, on a 24/7 basis.

Campana Industrial Complex (Buenos Aires)

This Industrial Complex located at Campana town has several chemical plants, whose production starts in from Ammonia Plants. These plants produce one of the raw materials used in the other processes, with a daily yield capacity of 370 tons.

Part of these raw materials are used to produce Pearled Urea (46% Solid Nitrogen), being able to produce 580 tons/day. The rest is used to obtain UAN (32% Fluid Nitrogen), with an annual capacity of 500K/ton.

In October 2004, the plant for Ammonium Thiosulfate (ATS) opened, with a capacity of 135 K tons/year. This product is mainly directed to the production of SolMIX, a soluble fluid fertilizer composed of ATS and UAN.

More recently, KTS (Liquid Potassium Thiosulfate) was added to the production. This product undergoes a very similar process to the one used for ATS.

Thus, Campana’s Industrial Complex produces the above-mentioned fertilizers with N-P-S, and also a small percentage of Zinc and Boron, which are part of new developments.

PGSM Industrial Complex (Santa Fe)

Puerto General San Martín Industrial Complex, is featured by being: Crushing Plant, Port Terminal, and Storage Plant for grains, meals, and oils.

Located on Parana River coast, it processes 8,000 tons/day of soybean, to produce crude oil and meal. The port terminal has two berths: Puerto Pampa and Puerto Dempa, with a joint loading capacity of 3,000 tons/hour.

Its total storage capacity is of 530,000 tons, broken down into 370,000 tons for grains and 160,000 tons for byproducts. For oils, its storage capacity amounts 48,000 tons, and its soybean refining capacity is of 500 tons/day.

Ramallo Industrial Complex (Bs As)

Port Terminal at Ramallo Industrial Complex was officially opened in September 2005. This Terminal is the headquarters for two main activities. One is directed to the export of grains and byproducts. To that purpose, it has a berth with a loading capacity of 3,000 TM/hour, and world class soybean processing plant, and a storage capacity that will host 1,400,000 tons/seeds and 100 K tons of crude oil in the next years. The other activity relates to Fertilizers. This Terminal has a plant, which manufactures Simple Calcium Superphosphate (SPS) under the trade name SP20Ramallo, and a berth for unloading fertilizers and raw materials, with a 1000 TM/hour capacity. Storage capacity is 250,000 tons for solids and 20,000 tons for fluids.

SJS Industrial Complex (Santa Fe)

San JeronimoSud Industrial Complex is located at 30 km from Rosario city, has a daily milling capacity of 2,500 tons, and a storage capacity of 142,550 tons. It produces crude and refined oil, and protein-rich soybean pellets and flour, with high nutritional value.

As from 2010, the Complex starts producing refined sunflower and safflower oil, with high and low oleic value, thus meeting the needs of an increasingly changing food market.

T6 - PGSM (Santa Fe)

In 1984, one of the largest private ports in Latin America is created through a partnership with Aceitera General Deheza.

Terminal 6 Industrial. The quality of its protein meals and the production volumes have converted this terminal into one of the main grinders in the world.

Since 1985 to date, several investments made at Terminal 6 S.A. allowed that, at present, it had a daily reception capacity of 76,000 tons of products, and a storage capacity greater than 1 million tons in solids and liquids.

At this T6 Industrial S.A., soybean crushing, and biodiesel production and refined glycerin are carried out. The company has a soybean milling capacity of over 20,000 tons/day to produce crude oil, protein meal and shell pellets. Moreover, these facilities produce biodiesel and refined glycerin for domestic use and for exports.

Tancacha Industrial Complex (Cba)

Tancacha Industrial Complex, at the town of Cordoba with the same name, where Guipeba was created in 1965 (cradle of present Bunge Argentina, and the place were still today the company has its accounting and tax headquarters), has a milling capacity of 1,000 tons/day, with a multipurpose oil extraction line to process soybean and peanuts.There is also a modern plant that produces lecithin, one of the few plants in the southern hemisphere that supplies the global market.

Tancacha Industrial Complex has a milling capacity of 3,600 tons/day, with two lines for multipurpose oil extraction, where soybean, peanuts, sunflowers and safflowers are processed. At the site, there is also a modern plant that produces lecithin, one of the few in the southern hemisphere that supplies the global market.

Soybean Lecithin Wet gums obtained from degumming processing of soybean oil, which are rich in phospholipids, generally exhibit 25 - 30% moisture. This is the raw material to obtain lecithin. It is fed into a dryer, which is a falling film evaporator and works with steam as indirect heating medium under vacuum conditions. Under these conditions, the water contained in wet gums evaporates to produce an intermediate product with lower than 1 percent moisture content. This intermediate lecithin has a very high viscosity, making it necessary to add oil and fatty acids to reach specifications. Once these substances have been added, it is homogenized and analyzed.

Lecithin is packed in drums, octabins, or dispatched in bulks. Bunge produces three different qualities of lecithin, two of food grade, and one of industrial grade. Presently, the highest percentage of lecithin is food grade, a very demanding market, because food safety is involved since lecithin is added to products that go directly to shelves, as is the case of milk powder.
