CVR Partners, LP (UAN) is a publicly-traded limited partnership that primarily focuses on the production of nitrogen fertilizers. The company was formed in 2007 and is a subsidiary of CVR Energy, Inc. CVR Partners’ headquarters are located in Sugar Land, Texas.
CVR Partners operates a nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing facility in Coffeyville, Kansas, known as the Coffeyville Facility. This facility primarily produces ammonia and urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) fertilizers. Ammonia and UAN are crucial nitrogen-based fertilizers used extensively in the agricultural sector to enhance crop yield and quality.
A unique aspect of CVR Partners’ operations is the integration of its fertilizer production with the adjacent petroleum refinery owned by its parent company, CVR Energy. This integration allows CVR Partners to utilize petroleum coke, a byproduct of the oil refining process, as a feedstock for its fertilizer production. The company employs a gasification process to convert the petroleum coke into hydrogen, which is then used to produce ammonia. This integrated approach helps to lower production costs and reduce the company’s dependence on natural gas as a feedstock.
CVR Partners is committed to environmental responsibility and strives to minimize the environmental impact of its operations by implementing best practices in resource management, emissions reduction, and waste management.
