General Information

Our Donaldsonville Nitrogen Complex is located on 1,400 acres along the west bank of the Mississippi River in southeastern Louisiana. It is North America's largest nitrogen operation.


Annual Capacity

Approximately 5 million tons of nitrogen products for agricultural and industrial use


There are approximately 450 permanent employees and 500 contract employees at the Donaldsonville complex. The expansion project will create 93 new permanent jobs, 2,500 construction jobs and 700 jobs in related industries.


The Donaldsonville facility is undergoing a $2.1 billion capacity expansion project with expected completion in 2016. The project takes advantage of the facility's proximity to abundant natural gas, a skilled local workforce and multiple transportation channels (including export capability). In addition, the ex[ansion contributes to a more assured supply of nitrogen fertilizer for American farmers.


At the Donaldsonville facility we support a number of nonprofit organizations, through both volunteerism and charitable giving.
