The West Fertilizer Company plant is owned by Adair Grain, Incorporated. Adair received an air quality permit as a fertilizer mixing and storage facility from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in December 2006, issued after Adair was investigated for failure to secure a permit, when a neighbor complained about an ammonia smell coming from the plant. Adair reportedly stored 54,000 pounds (27 short tons; 24 t) of anhydrous ammonia, which, along with nitric acid, is used to produce ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer, pesticide, and rodenticide. While it is still unknown whether Adair Grain was negligent in causing this explosion, the impact of the explosion to the West community has been devastating.
