Northern Plains Nitrogen, the group interested in building a fertilizer plant in Grand Forks, North Dakota, will be a part of the Midwest Carbon Express pipeline. The pipeline will send carbon to western North Dakota for underground storage. Northern Plains Nitrogen President of the Board and Managing Partner Darin Anderson says the partnership with Summit Carbon Solutions is a win-win. “Our partnership allows us to produce blue ammonia, a fancy way of saying decarbonized ammonia. As a refresher, any nitrogen fertilizer plant has to make ammonia before they make any other forms of nitrogen fertilizer. We would also be making blue urea, blue UAN and so forth.” Anderson says this project is good for the environment and North Dakota. Northern Plains Nitrogen continues to seek strategic investors for the fertilizer plant. The delay in financing allows the project to become shovel ready with all permits in place.
