CF Industries, which is the largest producer of UAN in the US, requested the investigations due to the harm it argues the domestic UAN industry has experienced from dumped and unfairly subsidised UAN imports from Russia and Trinidad.
“For too long, UAN producers in the United States, who are among the most efficient in the world, have competed on an uneven playing field due to dumped and unfairly subsidised imports from Russia and Trinidad,” said Tony Will, president and CEO, CF Industries Holdings, Inc. “The duties we are seeking will restore fairness to our highly competitive industry and help ensure that American UAN producers remain a reliable source of fertilizers for American farmers for years to come.”
