|BACKGROUND||The Mosaic Company announced Oct. 28 2013, a definitive agreement to acquire the phosphate business of CF Industries Inc., for a combined $1.4 billion.
The sale includes CF Industries’ Plant City Phosphate Complex, the 22,000-acre South Pasture phosphate mine and beneficiation plant in Hardee County, and ammonia terminal and finished product warehouse facilities in Tampa.
18 juin 2019. Mosaic announced that it will permanently close its Plant City fertilizer plant, which has been idled since 2017 because of slowing demand for phosphate.
However, some employees will have to remain on site to help decommission one of the plant's phosphogypsum stacks, a process company officials expect to take several years.
The Plant City plant was one Florida facility not targeted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for mishandling hazardous waste. In 2015 Mosaic settled with the EPA for improper storage and disposal of waste from the production of phosphoric and sulfuric acids, key components of fertilizers, at Mosaic's facilities in Bartow, New Wales, Mulberry, Riverview, South Pierce and Green Bay in Florida, as well as two sites in Louisiana.
