Macquarie Invests $325 Million in Green Fertilizer Company Atlas Agro

Macquarie Asset Management has announced a $325 million investment in Atlas Agro, a Swiss green nitrogen fertilizer company. The investment aims to support Atlas Agro’s growth and its vision of providing sustainable alternatives to conventional fossil-fuel-based fertilizers. Atlas Agro is building green nitrogen fertilizer plants in the U.S. and Latin America that will use green hydrogen in the production process, reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 2 million tons per year. The investment from Macquarie will enable Atlas Agro to expand into the U.S. and Latin America. Macquarie sees this investment as aligned with its energy transition thesis, focusing on green hydrogen as a feedstock.
