Ammonia is produced by combining hydrogen and nitrogen under high pressure in the presence of a catalyst. The most important raw materials are natural gas and air. Aqueous ammonia is produced by dissolving pure ammonia in demineralised water.
OCI Nitrogen produces aqueous ammonia in Geleen and Rotterdam (Europoort). This product is suitable for all known applications.
Aqueous ammonia is used as a source of nitrogen in fermentation processes (amino acids, yeasts, and single-cell proteins) for foodstuffs and pharmaceutical products.
The aqueous ammonia produced by OCI Nitrogen is of excellent quality for the continuous and trouble-free denitrification of waste gasses.
