New ammonium nitrate production process to reduce energy consumption at Avilés factory

State:

completed

At Fertiberia, we have developed an ammonium nitrate production process by means of which a high quality product

Objectives

The main objective of this project is to reduce energy consumption at the ammonia production plant in Avilés.

At Fertiberia, we have developed an ammonium nitrate production process by means of which a high quality product is obtained, adding sulphur via sulphuric acid and obtaining the product directly concentrated to 98% by weight, in a new reactor without the need for a concentration stage, improving the performance of the reaction, eliminating the consumption of steam for concentration and reducing as much as possible entrained elements in the condensate products.
