200 tons of urea owned by the military privately supplied… Australian transports arrive


About half of the amount of urea stored by the military, or 200 tons, was released to the private sector by the government lending it for a certain period of time. In addition, 27,000 liters of urea water urgently airlifted from Australia arrived in Korea on a military transport plane.

The amount of urea water that a unit in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do was stockpiling was supplied to gas stations near Incheon Port.

The reserve of urea water released by the military yesterday (11th) to the private sector is 200 tons, which is 45% of the total 445 tons of stockpile.

16 military units across the country supplied urea water to about 30 gas stations near five major ports across the country, including Busan and Incheon.

Only 30 liters of import/export container trucks can be purchased per unit, which is a measure that can supply about 7,000 out of 10,000 container trucks.

The Air Force’s multi-purpose aerial refueling transport aircraft KC330, which was put into operation for the domestic transfer of Afghan helpers in August, arrived at Gimhae Airport yesterday afternoon with 27,000 liters of urea water from Australia.

The government explained that if some of the urea water brought in this time is put into ambulances across the country first, there will be no problems in operation for at least two months.
