Définition de 2B1 Ammonia Production Catégorie de sources
Ammonia (NH3) is a major industrial chemical and the most important nitrogenous material produced. Ammonia gas is used directly as a fertilizer, in heat treating, paper pulping, nitric acid and nitrates manufacture, nitric acid ester and nitro compound manufacture, explosives of various types, and as a refrigerant. Amines, amides, and miscellaneous other organic compounds, such as urea, are made from ammonia. The main greenhouse gas emitted from NH3 production is CO2. CO2 used in the production of urea, a downstream process, should be subtracted from the CO2 generated and accounted for in the AFOLU Sector.
