The plant would convert natural gas into fertilizers, to be used by farmers. It is expected to cost more than one billion dollars. The company is investing $10 million in the first phase of the project which includes a feasibility study.
"Pursuing construction of this plant and ultimately making additional fertilizer available for the regions farmers will help us achieve our goal in feeding this hungry and growing planet," said CHS Board Chairman Jerry Hasnedl.
It is expected that the plant, which would operate 24-hours a day seven days a week, will bring between 100 and 150 jobs to the state.
