Food For Thought: Boosting Crop Output Becomes Critical

  • Ammonia and nitrogen-based fertilizer prices have surged since 2021, adding to factors driving rising concerns about food price inflation and availability.
  • U.S. ammonia economics are compelling, given low natural gas costs compared to those abroad and strong farmer financials enable them to absorb high prices.
  • Domestic ammonia production growth plans are “blue” with hints of green if the costs decline. “Blue” is not without challenges as carbon capture costs remain high.
  • We discuss Orbia’s ambitions to grow its PVC business, think a venture with Olin may make sense for some of it, and note signs of housing market weakness ahead.
  • Otherwise, we talk about more 2022 optimism, the differing landscape for polyethylene versus polypropylene, and more on ethylene feedstocks and LNG.

Last week we discussed 29 Chemicals and related products and 159 Companies.
