Fertilizer Industry Data Shows Sustainability Improvements

The annual sustainability report from The Fertilizer Institute highlights improvements in safety, energy reduction, and carbon capture.
CEO Corey Rosenbusch tells Brownfield the fertilizer industry’s safety rating is the highest it has been since data collection began in 2013 and 41% of all energy consumed is generated using waste heat rather than pulling from the electrical grid.
“29% of all the CO2 that was generated per ton of nutrient produced was recaptured and utilized for other products and we saw 53% less water was used to produce one ton of fertilizer compared to 2013.”
He says the data will be beneficial when speaking with lawmakers and the new administration about their climate priorities.
