Ammonia
Ammonia is a chemical compound made of Nitrogen 82% and Hydrogen 18%. It is produced using Natural gas as the main feedstock. The other feeds required are Steam and Air. These feed materials undergo a series of reactions in the ammonia plant, before ammonia is produced in gaseous form. This is turned into liquid under pressure and cooling down. Ammonia is stored at a temperature of minus 33 deg centigrade in a, specially refrigerated ammonia storage tank. A major part of the ammonia produced in QAFCO Ammonia plants is consumed internally, as feedstock for the Urea plants. The surplus ammonia is exported through ships.
