Ammonia
NH3
Ammonia (a.k.a. NH3) is one of the most produced synthetic chemicals, manufactured in more than 80 countries. In fact, the synthesis of this world class commodity figures among the greatest achievements of industrial chemistry, after which important processes were developed, such as methanol and oxo synthesis, Fischer-Tropsch process and Reppe reactions.
The uses and applications of Ammonia may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Ammonia are commercial or fertilizer grade (99.5% minimum purity, maximum water content of 5,000 ppm); refrigeration grade (99.98% minimum purity, maximum content of 150 ppm); and metallurgical grade (99.99% minimum purity, maximum water content of 33 ppm).

Ammonia Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Ammonia Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Ammonia manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Ammonia process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Ammonia production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Ammonia Production from Syngas

This report presents the economics of Ammonia production from synthesis gas (syngas). In this process, hydrogen, recovered from syngas feedstock, and nitrogen, recovered from air, react producing Ammonia. The economic analysis performed assumes a plant located in the United States.

The cost analyses presented in the report Ammonia E11A target a 800 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Ammonia Production from Natural Gas (Combined Reforming)

This report presents the economics of Ammonia production from natural gas in the United States using a process similar to KBR Purifier process. In the process examined, syngas is initially produced from natural gas via a combined reforming. The syngas is purified through several steps into nitrogen and hydrogen which are synthesized to ammonia.

The cost analyses presented in the report Ammonia E21A target a 800 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Ammonia Production from Natural Gas (Chemical Looping Process)

This study approaches the economics of Ammonia manufacturing from natural gas in the United States. This report assumes a novel plant configuration reported in the literature, in which three chemical looping reactors, respectively fed by natural gas, steam and air are used. The outlet from the looping reactors is passed through compression and water separation steps to generate pure streams of nitrogen, hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Nitrogen and hydrogen react to generate Ammonia.

The cost analyses presented in the report Ammonia E22A target a 800 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Ammonia Production from Coal

This report examines the costs related to Ammonia production from coal in China. In this process, coal undergoes pyrolysis, producing coke. It is then subjected to a gasification process. Coke reacts with steam and oxygen yielding mainly carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2). CO and water are shifted to CO2 and hydrogen. Finally, nitrogen and hydrogen react to produce ammonia.

The cost analyses presented in the report Ammonia E31C target a 800 kta (kilometric tons per annum) China-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Ammonia Production from Heavy Oil

This report examines the costs related to Ammonia production from heavy oil. The process under analysis integrates a heavy oil partial oxidation process for synthesis gas production with a unit that produces ammonia from hydrogen and nitrogen. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 800 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Ammonia E41A target a 800 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

About Ammonia. Ammonia (a.k.a. NH3) is one of the most produced synthetic chemicals, manufactured in more than 80 countries. In fact, the synthesis of this world class commodity figures among the greatest achievements of industrial chemistry, after which important processes were developed, such as methanol and oxo synthesis, Fischer-Tropsch process and Reppe reactions.

Ammonia Uses. The uses and applications of Ammonia may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Ammonia are commercial or fertilizer grade (99.5% minimum purity,maximum water content of 5,000 ppm); refrigeration grade (99.98% minimum purity,maximum content of 150 ppm); and metallurgical grade (99.99% minimum purity,maximum water content of 33 ppm).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
