Fomet Spa has implemented a laboratory for chemical analysis with the purpose of continuously monitoring the section of fertilizer production, succeeding to provide test results quickly. Main functions of FometL@b are:
There are also analysis carried out continuously (analytical results are reported on a certificate of analysis) on at least 120 samples per month:
Fomet Spa is determined in continuing investment in this work, because FometL@b has contributed greatly to improving of supervision of incoming raw material and outgoing finished products. In 2013 it was purchased an automatic distiller Kjeldahl for the determination of different types of Nitrogen.
FometL@b, which was enlarged in 2015 with the purchase of analytical tools (NIRs/AAS), has initiated cooperation projects with several universities and private organizations of agronomical research, with the purpose to investigate further the action of organic fertilizers on soil-plant system.
In 2020 Fomet Spa opened a new research center of 410 sq.mt, an expansion of the existing FometL@b, whose function is to apply industrial methods and systems on an industrial scale focused on natural and sustainable processes.

CFPN, CENTER FOR PLANT NUTRITION, represents the research & agronomic trial hub of Fomet Spa.
It's located on the outside and adjacent to the plant, it covers a fenced area of 4.800 sq.m. and it overall consists of three related cases:
All this is associated with a series of thesis which results in observations of growth and morphology figures; in collection and subsequent analysis of certain quality parameters; in physical/chemical analysis in close collaboration with FOMETL@B.
CFPN is also location of tours of customers, technical communicators.
CFPN is instrument of potential open days to inform customer about progress of Fomet Spa's Research in relation to own suggestions about fertilization and nutrition of fields and crops.
