Agrium applies for air permit

Posted: October 22, 2013 - 6:04pm  |  Updated: October 22, 2013 - 9:50pm

Agrium Corp. today announced it applied for an air quality operations permit with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, said Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Mike Navarre.

Navarre said he received an email from the company saying the permit application — which is a year long process — was filed in conjunction with a company evaluation on reopening the Nikiski fertilizer plant.

They’re doing both concurrently so that if they want to reopen next year they can, Navarre said.

In June, Steve Wendt, the company’s manager for the facility, said Agrium was evaluating the state of existing equipment and had 50 people employed in the process.

“The company is not making any decision whether to resume operations at the facility at this time,” Wendt said.

Today, the company, which closed the ammonia and urea fertilizer plant in 2007, described the permit application with DEC as a “milestone,” Navarre said.
