Pakistani company forging ahead with Posey County plans for fertilizer plant
While Gov. Mike Pence is still hitting the pause button on a proposed Posey County fertilizer plant, the projectís developers are lobbying federal, state and local officials to move the project forward ó and proceeding as if the answer is yes.
The project hit a stumbling block in mid-January, after Pence learned of security concerns involving the company pushing the project, Pakistan-based Fatima Group.
Fatima has fertilizer factories in Pakistan, and the companyís ammonium nitrate fertilizer from those plants has made its way into improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan, the same bombs that have killed many U.S. troops.
The short version: this company produces a product that has/is being used in IEDs to kill Americans. They have not been extremely cooperative in modifying their product so it can't be used in IEDs in America.
