CF Fertilisers is taking action to reduce the carbon footprint of nitrogen fertiliser manufacturer.

Over the next 50 years global population will increase by 30% to 9 Billion people, food production will need to double to feed an increasingly hungry world and the demands placed on farmers and growers will be unprecedented.

All told CF Fertilisers has reduced the carbon footprint of Nitram production by 40% since 2010. 

The international standard figure is 6.6kg Carbon dioxide emitted for every 1.0kg of Nitrogen produced.  With CF ammonium nitrate (Nitram) it is almost half this at 3.4kg for every 1.0kg of N.
