Production at PCI Nitrogen

PCI Nitrogen is a premier producer of bulk fertilizer and industrial chemicals.

One of the largest producers of bulk synthetic grade granular ammonium sulfate in the world, all products are produced to consistent material specifications and reliable quality to exceed the industry standard.

A premier producer of bulk fertilizer and industrial commodities, the plant was acquired in 2016. The facility was at one time a major phosphate producer which was repurposed in 2010 for ammonium sulfate production.

Today, the plant supplies various agricultural fertilizer products and industrial chemicals to essential industries, and is one of the largest producers of synthetic granular ammonium sulfate in North America.

Environmental Initiatives

PCI Nitrogen’s energy consumption is powered by its own cogeneration unit. This unit captures waste heat from the production process to generate energy for PCI and the excess is used to supplement the Texas energy grid. PCI continues to pursue initiatives to have a positive impact on the environment.

Reliable, Consistent & Deliberate Quality Products

There are many facilities that offer ammonium sulfate as a co-product of another process. At PCI however, our ammonium sulfate is a proprietary patented product, made in the United States, for the primary purpose of providing Nitrogen & Sulfur to the agricultural industry

All PCI products are produced and maintained to the highest standard—from procurement & production at PCI to the application by the end user.
Our customers have the benefit of buying the highest possible quality product directly from the producer at a competitive price. Domestic production assures stringent quality control is maintained as well as provides for American jobs.
