Cincinnati, OH - May 1st, 2012 - KOST USA, Inc. will increase DEFendal® Diesel Exhaust Fluid pricing effective on shipments made on or after May 1st, 2012. The increase amount is $.21 per gallon and is effective on all package sizes. (Rail, Bulk truckloads, IBC/Totes-330, Drums-55, 2.5 gallons-2x1, and 1 gallon-6x1 containers). The monthly NOLA average released today stands at $680.00 m/ton.
Market Update: Yet again urea prices have continued to trend in an upward direction at a very quick pace domestically. The NOLA average has risen several hundred points over the last couple of months. The primary driver continues to be the increase in agriculture demand in all regions with better than expected moisture a factor. Tight import supply due to low agriculture inventories, and global production issues with various new plant start up's (Qafco, Egypt, Algeria) are sighted as continued factors.
