LSB Industries, Inc. resumed production of nitric acid at its El Dorado, Arkansas chemical facility on November 16, 2016 following the completion of a temporary nitrous oxide bypass system, and the receipt of required permitting from state regulators. The work was completed to remedy a previously disclosed leak in the nitrous oxide abatement vessel of El Dorado’s new nitric acid plant. The Company plans to install a new permanent nitrous oxide abatement vessel that management anticipates will be completed in late 2017. In the meantime, the temporary solution is expected to enable El Dorado’s nitric acid plant to operate at targeted capacity on an ongoing basis.
