Nebraska Story | Monolith

Redefining manufacturing innovation. Right here in Nebraska.

With nearly 200 employees in Nebraska and plans for major expansion in Hallam, Monolith’s groundbreaking technology is leading the country’s decarbonization efforts from the heart of the Cornhusker State.

Monolith’s advanced manufacturing provides great jobs while creating the next generation of American made products, reducing the need to import materials used to make everyday products.


Monolith’s cutting-edge technology uses the pyrolysis process to create clean hydrogen and carbon black.

The hydrogen created by this process at OC1 and OC2 will be used to create sustainably made ammonia, a critical fertilizer for agriculture.

The clean carbon black, which traditionally is produced in a carbon-intense manner, is used to create everyday products like rubbers and plastics and makes up 1/3 of every vehicle tire on the road.

How does sustainably-made carbon black touch your everyday life?

Growing Monolith. Growing Nebraska.

Monolith will invest over $1 billion constructing its Olive Creek 2 expansion north of Hallam, NE. The expansion will create over 700 (direct and indirect) jobs for Nebraskans while supplying Nebraska ag producers with domestically produced, cleanly-made ammonia for fertilizer.

2023 was a great year for operations in Nebraska, and we’re just getting started with more expansion and opportunities for the state.
