    Dissolving AMEL

    I don't think the partnership arrangement is much of a factor in the success of the business as opposed to the cost of natural gas and a "make or buy" decision from that. The process is very energy intensive using natural gas to fire a molten salt reactor heater and using ammonia from natural gas as a precursor raw material. (air+natural gas-->ammonia + CO2--->urea + heat (nat gas)--->melamine. There may come a time when all of the synergies at FO can't make up for the cost of natural gas in this country and the manufacture goes off-shore. My sense is that at the rates the plant has been running lately, it won't be a big deal either way.
