About the company:

Nitricity is a startup addressing climate change, and we are looking for your help! We are innovating in an essential chemical industry that supports global food systems. The bedrock of modern agriculture is the production, distribution, and application of the essential nutrients found in fertilizers. However, nitrogen fertilizer is currently made in coal- and gas-fired facilities located hundreds to thousands of miles away from farmers who need it. The $120B industry is responsible for as much as 6% of global CO2eq emissions. Nitricity Inc. has developed a new technology that produces fertilizer using air, water, and renewable electricity (e.g., solar). Growers will have access to a more reliable, low cost, and environmentally friendly fertilizer supply. We are actively growing our team to help us turn this vision into a reality. 

About us

Nitricity is a leading agriculture player committed to delivering sustainable and innovative solutions for farmers worldwide. We provide high-quality fertilizers that enhance crop yields while promoting environmental stewardship. With a solid commitment to sustainable agriculture, we are dedicated to improving food security and reducing the environmental impact of farming practices.
