The Leigh Creek Urea Project (LCUP) is Leigh Creek Energy’s (ASX:LCK) flagship project.
Leigh Creek Energy is developing low-cost nitrogen-based fertiliser for local and export agriculture markets. Located in South Australia, 550 kilometres north of Adelaide, the LCUP will initially produce 1Mtpa (with potential to increase to 2Mtpa) of urea.
LCK has a comprehensive environment, social and governance strategy. It has produced syngas within all approved environmental parameters set by the regulator.
LCUP has voluntarily committed to be carbon neutral from 2022 and has committed to demonstrate this having by transparent and auditable pathways through Climate Active and Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
LCUP will be one of the biggest infrastructure projects of its type in Australia, providing long term economic development and employment opportunities for the communities of the Upper Spencer Gulf region, northern Flinders Ranges and South Australia. The LCUP will be the only fully integrated urea production facility in Australia, with all inputs for low carbon urea production on-site.
