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 is used in a myriad of applications, from fertilizers to wood pulping and drugs.
Chemical Formula. NH3
Commercial Grades. Commercial or fertilizer grade (min. 99.5% of purity, max. water content of 5000ppm); refrigeration grade (min. 99.98% of purity, max. content of 150ppm); metallurgical grade (min. 99.99% of purity, max. water content of 33ppm)
Uses. The main application of Ammonia is in nitrogen fertilizers, followed by the synthesis of nitric acid. It is also used, to a lesser extent, in several other applications such as pulping of wood, explosives production and as ingredient in household cleaners and drugs.
- Naphtha/natural gas (steam reforming of light hydrocarbons)
- Coal, petroleum coke, petroleum resids (partial oxidation of carbon source)
