Rentech, Inc., through its subsidiaries, engages in the manufacture and sale of natural-gas based nitrogen fertilizer products in the United States and Brazil Nitrogen Fertilizer Business The company owns, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, the general partner interest and 59.8% of the common units representing limited partner interests in Rentech Nitrogen Partners, L.P. (RNP), a publicly traded partnership that, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Rentech Nitrogen, LLC (RNLLC), manufactures natural-gas based nitrogen fertilizer products at the East Dubuque Facility and sells such products to customers located in the Mid Corn Belt region of the United States. In addition, RNP, through its wholly owned subsidiary, RNPLLC, manufactures fertilizer products and sulfuric acid and sells, through distributors, to customers primarily in the United States and Brazil. East Dubuque Facility The company’s East Dubuque Facility is located on approximately 210 acres in the northwest corner of Illinois on a 140-foot bluff above the Upper Mississippi River. Its East Dubuque Facility produces ammonia, UAN, liquid and granular urea, nitric acid and food-grade carbon dioxide, or CO2, using natural gas as its primary feedstock. Expansion Projects The company’s ammonia production and storage capacity expansion project at the East Dubuque Facility. Urea Expansion Project: In 2013, the company commenced installation of a CO2 compressor which is expected to increase liquid urea production at its East Dubuque Facility to approximately 484 tons per day or 176,660 tons annually. Products The company’s East Dubuque Facility’s product sales are heavily weighted toward sales of ammonia and UAN. A majority of the company’s East Dubuque Facility’s products are sold through its distribution agreement with Agrium. Ammonia: The company’s East Dubuque Facility produces ammonia, the simplest form of nitrogen fertilizer and the feedstock for the production of other nitrogen fertilizers. The ammonia processing unit at its East Dubuque Facility has a rated capacity of approximately 1,020 tons per day. The company’s East Dubuque Facility’s ammonia product storage consists of three 20,000 ton tanks and 15,000 tons of leased storage in Niota, Illinois. Ammonia is used in the production of all other products produced by its East Dubuque Facility, except CO2. UAN: UAN is a liquid fertilizer that has a slight ammonia odor and, unlike ammonia, it does not need to be refrigerated or pressurized when transported or stored. The company’s East Dubuque Facility has two UAN storage tanks with a combined capacity of 80,000 tons. Urea: The company’s East Dubuque Facility’s urea solution is sold in its liquid state, processed into granular urea through the facility’s urea granulation plant to create dry granular urea (46% nitrogen concentration) or upgraded into diesel exhaust fluid, or DEF, or UAN. Nitric Acid: The company’s East Dubuque Facility produces nitric acid through two separate nitric acid plants at the facility. Nitric acid is either sold to third parties or used within the facility for the production of ammonium nitrate solution, as an intermediate from which UAN is produced. Carbon Dioxide: CO2 is a gaseous product that is co-manufactured with ammonia, with approximately 1.1 tons of CO2 produced per ton of ammonia produced. The company’s East Dubuque Facility utilizes CO2 in its urea production and has developed a market for CO2 through conversion to a purified food grade liquid CO2. Its East Dubuque Facility has storage capacity for approximately 1,900 tons of CO2. Marketing and Distribution The company’s East Dubuque Facility is located in the center of the Mid Corn Belt, the largest market in the United States for direct application of nitrogen fertilizer products. The Mid Corn Belt includes the States of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Ohio. Customers The company sells a majority of its East Dubuque Facility’s nitrogen products to customers located in the facility’s core market. It serves Crop Production Services, Inc., or CPS, a controlled affiliate of Agrium. Pasadena Facility
