Yara opens Mississippi River terminal

Air1 Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) manufacturer Yara has opened a terminal in Convent, Louisiana, which will help support its DEF network.

The terminal, which will primarily service Yara's fertilizer business, is based 60 miles up the Mississippi River from New Orleans.

Bartolomeo Pescio, President of Yara North America, said: "The establishment of a terminal in New Orleans, the primary import gateway of North America, is an important milestone in our distribution strategy and reaffirms our dedication to our customers to serve as a reliable partner."

Yara began construction of the 55,000mt NOLA import fertilizer terminal and warehouse in 2008. The terminal will be capable of accommodating bulk carrier vessels up to Panamax size.
