Nitric Acid Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

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.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Nitric Acid 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 Nitric Acid production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Weak Nitric Acid Production from Ammonia - Cost Analysis | NA E11A

This report analyzes the economics of Nitric Acid production from ammonia via a typical Medium Pressure process in the United States. In this process, ammonia is initially oxidized to nitric oxide. Then, nitric oxide is oxidized to form nitrogen dioxide, and absorbed (at the same pressure) by water producing 65 wt% Nitric Acid solution as the final product.
