Rentech completes urea capacity expansion in Illinois, US

LOS ANGELES, US: Rentech Nitrogen Partners LP has completed its previously announced capacity expansion project to increase urea production by 21,900 tonne (15 per cent), at its nitrogen fertilizer facility in East Dubuque, Illinois, US. This is an annual increase of 2,650 tonne from the previous estimate of 19,250 tonne and is based on actual plant operation.

The additional urea tonne will be converted into and sold as diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to Yara North America Inc, and the sales are expected to provide an incremental increase to Rentech Nitrogen’s cash available for distribution beginning in 2013. Yara maintains the exclusive rights to purchase DEF produced at Rentech Nitrogen’s facility under a long-term agreement based on index pricing and distribute the DEF through its Air1 brand.
