Ammonia Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

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.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Ammonia production. 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 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Ammonia production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Ammonia Production from Syngas - Cost Analysis | Ammonia E11A

This report presents the economics of Ammonia production from syngas (synthesis gas). 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 USA.

Ammonia Production from Natural Gas - Cost Analysis | Ammonia E21A

This report presents the economics of Ammonia production from natural gas in the USA 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.

Ammonia Production from Coal - Cost Analysis | Ammonia E31C

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