Fertilizer plant feasibility study completed
The North Dakota Corn Growers Association announced that a feasibility study has concluded looking at a nitrogen fertilizer plant using flared natural gas from the North Dakota oil patch. Corn growers and the fertilizer industry are looking at North Dakota, South Dakota or Minnesota as the home for their proposed $1 billion plant. The group was awarded a grant through North Dakota State University to study the feasibility of the plant that would use up a portion of the flared natural gas and also lessen dependence on foreign imports of fertilizer.
