About Urea. Urea (a.k.a. Carbamide) is an nitrogenous organic compound composed of a carbonyl group attached to two amine groups, which plays an important role in many biological processes, being a product of the decomposition of proteins. Carbamide is found as white and odorless solid, soluble in water, with very low toxicity. Urea has the highest nitrogen content between all solid nitrogen-based fertilizers, and for that, it is mostly used as a nitrogen-release fertilizer.
Chemical Formula. CO(NH2)2
Commercial Grades. coated grade (white prills or granules) and uncoated grade (white prills or granules).
Uses. More than 90% of the Urea produced commercially is employed as a nitrogen-release fertilizer. To a lesser extent, Urea is used as cattle-feed supplement; airport runway deicing agent; plasticizer; NOx removal reagent; in pharmaceutical preparations (reagent-grade); glues; and solvents.
- Ammonia + calcium dioxide (condensation).
