General Information

CF Industries' Donaldsonville Complex is located on 1,400 acres along the west bank of the Mississippi River in southeastern Louisiana. It is the world's largest and most flexible ammonia production facility, serving customers on every continent.

Today, the site has six world-scale ammonia plants, five urea plants, four nitric acid plants, three urea ammonium nitrate plants and a diesel exhaust fluid plant. The site ships product to customers via the NuStar ammonia pipeline, rail, truck barge (river and ocean), and deep water vessel. 


Annual Capacity

Nearly 8 million tons of nitrogen products for agricultural and industrial use annually depending on product mix.


There are approximately 485 permanent employees and 500 contract employees at the Donaldsonville complex. 


We are family at the Donaldsonville Complex, and consider the local community a part of our extended family. We support a number of nonprofit organizations through both volunteerism and charitable giving.

Every year our employees conduct a United Way campaign. In 2017, the participation rate was over 96 percent and more than $179,000 was raised for the Capital Area United Way and United Way for South Louisiana.


Environmental Health & Safety

The safety and well-being of our employees and communities is our core-value. This is expressed daily in our company's culture, training and awareness. Learn more about our dedication to environmental health and safety here.

All employees at our plant regularly receive extensive safety and process operations training. This includes on-site emergency response simulation drills and exercises, as well as reviews of notification, evacuation and shelter-in-place plans. We are partners with local first responders, who often participate in these exercises.

Environmental stewardship is a high priority both on-site and in the transport and use of products. CF Industries has committed significant resources to minimize emissions. We operate in strict compliance with environmental permits and regulations.
