Yara JV with temporary ammonia production stop in Billingham
Dec 08, 2008
The decision to stop production temporarily is related to the current situation in international ammonia markets with lower activity and price levels, as well as lower industrial ammonia demand in UK.
The ammonia plant will startup when market conditions warrant resuming production.
