Rentech Nitrogen Partners, L.P. is a pure-play fertilizer company formed by Rentech, Inc. as a publicly traded master limited partnership. We own two fertilizer production facilities, one located in East Dubuque, Il and the other in Pasadena, TX.
Rentech Nitrogen East Dubuque can produce up to 830 tons of ammonia per day and we have an expansion project underway to increase ammonia capacity to approximately 1,022 tons per day. The facility has the flexibility to vary product mix significantly, which permits us to upgrade our ammonia production into varying amounts of UAN, nitric acid and liquid and granulated urea each season, depending on market demand, pricing and storage availability.
Rentech Nitrogen Pasadena is the third largest producer of ammonium sulfate fertilizer in North America, and the largest producer in North America of synthetic granulated ammonium sulfate. The plant’s other products include ammonium thiosulfate and sulfuric acid. The Pasadena facility currently produces 1,750 tons per day of ammonium sulfate and we plan to expand production to 2,100 tons per day by the second half of 2014.
