US Koch Fertilizer to increase UAN production at Kansas facility
HOUSTON (ICIS)–US Koch Fertilizer announced it is planning a $30m optimisation project at its Dodge City, Kansas, nitrogen plant to increase UAN production by 35,000 short tons per year.
The producer said the lift in output will help meet growing UAN demand locally as well as across western Kansas and eastern Colorado.
In addition the project will further improve the facility’s reliability as well as environmental and safety performance through equipment and process upgrades.
Construction is scheduled to begin during early 2023 and the optimised processes are expected to be fully operational by the end of the year.
“We are dedicated to being our customer’s long-term supplier of choice by providing the products they value most,” said Scott McGinn, Koch Fertilizer executive vice president.
“This investment reflects Koch Fertilizer’s commitment to continued growth and reinvestment in our plants.”
Koch noted that the Dodge City investment follows three recent Koch Fertilizer expansion projects at their operations in Beatrice, Nebraska, Fort Dodge, Iowa, and Enid, Oklahoma.
