Where it comes from

Nitrogen products are synthesized from the air (78 percent of air is nitrogen) using steam and natural gas.

Applications

  • As fertilizer — essential for protein synthesis, speeds plant growth
  • As feed — plays a key role in animal growth and development
  • Used in industrial products (plastics, resins, adhesives) and for emission reduction (diesel engines, power plants)

Competitive strengths

  • Lower-cost exporter to the US market, the world’s largest nitrogen importer
  • Development of shale gas has resulted in a favorable cost position for our US nitrogen plants
  • Geographic location of US-manufactured ammonia operations relatively insulated from competitive US Gulf imports
  • Approximately two-thirds of our sales are to less cyclical industrial customers
