Nitricity produces distributed fertilizer production systems that produce regionalized nitrogen fertilizer using air, water and renewable energy. The process scales down, enabling distributed manufacturing, bypassing the need for complicated logistics involved in fertilizer production. Nitricity has completed four pilots and six projects across Alabama and California. Nitricity is looking to secure itself in the premium produce market before expanding into adjacent markets, and then commodities.

  • Raised $20 Million in Series A funding
  • Commissioned new pilot system in Fremont, CA in October 12th, 2023
  • Secured investment from Chipotle on December 13th, 2023 to improve the future of farming
