The Summit Texas Clean Energy Project coal gasification plant is expected to generate up to 700,000 tons/year (635,000 tonnes/year) of urea, along with 400 megawatts of electrical power while capturing approximately 3m tons/year of carbon dioxide.
Construction of the plant, about 15 miles (24 km) west of Odessa, Texas, is expected to begin in the autumn of 2012.
"The ability to source high-quality, domestically produced urea will help enhance and streamline our operations while providing consistent supply to customers throughout the region," said Cheryl Schmura, CHS vice president, crop nutrients.
Minnesota-headquartered CHS is the nation's largest farmer-owned cooperative.
The company operates petroleum refineries and pipelines and manufactures, markets and distributes refined fuels, lubricants, propane and renewable energy products.
