Government secures agreement to ensure carbon dioxide supplies

Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng has announced an agreement with CF Fertilisers to ensure the continued supply of carbon dioxide to UK businesses.

The exceptional short term arrangement with CF Fertilisers will allow the company to immediately restart operations and produce carbon dioxide at its Billingham plant. The Government will provide limited financial support for CF Fertilisers’ operating costs for three weeks whilst the carbon dioxide market adapts to global gas prices.
