Mosaic Reports Minor Explosion at Louisiana Ammonia Plant
Thursday October 12, 1:09 pm ET

PLYMOUTH, Minn., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Mosaic Company reported today that a minor explosion occurred at its Faustina, Louisiana ammonia plant on Wednesday evening. No injuries resulted from the explosion, which is believed to have occurred in a vessel that contained hydrogen used in the conversion to ammonia. The combustion of hydrogen results in water, therefore no toxic releases occurred. Damage to the Faustina plant is estimated to be minimal, but the Company has temporarily shut down its phosphate granulation operations to complete its investigation of the incident. It is not expected that this event will have a material impact on the Company's production operations at the facility.
