DEERFIELD, US: CF Industries Holdings Inc, global manufacturer of hydrogen and nitrogen products, announced that it is restarting the ammonia plant at its Billingham, UK, complex. The restart follows an interim agreement reached to cover the costs to restart the ammonia plant and produce CO2 for the UK market.

“We want to thank Kwasi Kwarteng, secretary of state for business, energy and industrial strategy, and his entire staff for working tirelessly to bring about this agreement enabling restart of the plant and averting a potential CO2 supply disruption impacting many industries, including food and beverage availability to UK consumers,” said Tony Will, president and chief executive officer, CF Industries Holdings Inc. “We look forward to working with Kwarteng and the UK government on developing a longer-term solution, including the development of alternative suppliers of CO2 for the UK market.”

CO2 is a byproduct of the ammonia production process. Safely restarting the ammonia plant at the Billingham Complex is expected to take several days.

On 15th September, the company had said that it was halting operations at both its Billingham and Ince, UK, manufacturing complexes due to high natural gas prices.
