The Big N. The Most Powerful Technical Achievement In The US economy.
The base root of the world economy is anhydrous ammonia.
Only in North America is NH3 directly applied with tremendous economic advantage.


The biggest anhydrous ammonia plants in the world are 2,500 to 3,500 tons per day as per Saudi Arabia.  

A new plant at Freeport, Texas went on line in April at 2,500 tons per day…another NH3 plant in Iowa, at about 2,300 tons per day…..all in the first and second quarter of 2018.  
In the US most new facilities are owned by Norwegians, Egyptians or Germans.  Koch does not build new plants, they buy old plants.

This is the newest NH3 plant now just about ready to go to full production for fall 2018.
Three passes…NH1, NH2, NH3, right here at very high pressures. This is it, the screaming heart of the system.  

The process typically takes three passes to make the highest quality chemical product in the world.  
The N came from the 78 percent atmospheric N2 and the Hydrogen (Methane CH4) comes from Natural Gas.
NH3 plants have a lot of very low cost Natural Gas thanks to fracking revolution in the oil fields.


Cold Storage at -28F, A single tank?

  • Typically there are two storage cryogenic tanks except for Agrium at Borger, Texas which has no large cryogenic, low pressure storage tank.
  • Why?

This is a busy highway with a 65 mph speed limit with an emphasis patrol.




Another great technical achievement …one of the best in the last 200 years.  Fortigen did it again at Geneva.
The USA, The Land of Directly Applied NH3, We have it and they don’t
. The most powerful technical advancement in the US economy is NH3.

No matter if the bands were directly under the row as Binary bands or equal bands to the side of the corn seed row.
Now for the yield results.
