Plant nutrients manufacturer and marketer Koch Fertilizer revealed plans this week to invest $30 million in an optimization project at its urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) production plant in Dodge City, KS that will increase the site’s capacity by 35,000 tn/yr.

“This project will increase production to meet growing UAN demand locally as well as across western Kansas and eastern Colorado,” Scott McGinn, Koch Fertilizer executive vice president, said in a company release.

Equipment and process upgrades will be carried out at the location to increase its reliability and environmental and safety performance.

“This investment strengthens the long-term vitality of the Dodge City site,” said Paul Liddle, Dodge City plant manager. “We continue to find ways to enhance our reliability and productivity, while using fewer resources and respecting the environment, which benefits our employees, our customers and the community.”

Work is expected to commence in 2023 and operations are slated to begin before the end of that year.

Koch Fertilizer announced it was injecting $90 million into an upgrade of its Beatrice, NE nitrogen plant in November 2020.
