Published by Jack Roscoe,
Técnicas Reunidas has signed a contract with the green fertilizer company, Atlas Agro, for the development of a zero-carbon fertilizer plant, Pacific Green Fertilizer (PGF), in Richland, Washington, US.
The two companies have already worked together in the previous stage, the feasibility phase of the PGF Plant.
The nitrogen fertilizer plant will use proprietary technology for the main process units and will be one of the world’s first full scale zero-carbon nitrogen plant, using only air, water and zero-carbon electricity as raw materials.
It will have the capacity to produce 650 000 tpy of calcium ammonium nitrate and will be composed of the following main units: ammonia, nitric acid, ammonium nitrate, calcium ammonium nitrate, calcium nitrate, electrolyzers and air separation.
The plant will be the first of a series that Atlas Agro plans to build in multiple regions across the world.
