Nitric Acid (a.k.a. HNO3) is a strong acid of major importance. When heated or exposed to light, the acid decomposes to nitrogen dioxide, coloring it yellow. Vapors of nitrogen dioxide can absorb moisture, originating the name fuming acid. This acid is very corrosive to metals and very toxic to humans.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Nitric Acid production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
