Northern Plains Nitrogen to build nitrogen fertilizer facility in North Dakota, US

NORTH DAKOTA, US: Northern Plains Nitrogen plans to build and operate a $1.5 billion nitrogen fertilizer production facility near Grand Forks, North Dakota, US. The world-scale production facility will include a 2,200 tonne per day ammonia plant plus urea and urea-ammonium-nitrate production facilities.

The facility will be located on land adjacent to the Grand Forks wastewater treatment plant. There are currently discussions underway for Northern Plains Nitrogen to utilize the wastewater effluent from the Grand Forks wastewater treatment process for the plant’s water supply. The completion of the plant is expected by 2017.

“This green-field world-scale production facility will be among the safest, most efficient and environmentally compliant ever constructed. By using modern technology which, among other benefits, reduces our carbon footprint, the Northern Plains Nitrogen facility is taking shape to be a very exciting and worthwhile undertaking,” said Don Pottinger, CEO, Northern Plains Nitrogen.
