A start-up company says it’s developing an eco-friendly $750 million fertilizer plant that will increase supplies for the Western Corn Belt and produce zero-carbon ammonia.
Farmer Andy Jobman says Project Meadowlark’s facility in the Central-Nebraska town of Gothenburg will diversify the region’s fertilizer production. “We’ve fought a lot of high prices and volatile prices in the last few years. Hopefully this additional source will create some stability and opportunities for lower prices.”
The new factory by JWC Gburg LLC says it will produce an additional 350,000 tons of urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) per year and 140,000 tons of ammonium thiosulfate (ATS).
