Agrium nitrogen plant shut down for repairs

1 Min Read

Oct 31 (Reuters) - Agrium Inc , one of North America's largest producers of nitrogen fertilizer, said its nitrogen plant at Redwater, Alberta, was shut down on Oct. 15 due to a failed waste heat boiler and will undergo repairs until Nov. 20.

The reduced availability of ammonia, a form of nitrogen, from the plant will result in a lower operating rate for Redwater's phosphate plant, the company said on Thursday.
