Fertilizer Plant

At a fertilizer plant, a material source such as oil or natural gas is used to synthesize ammonia and produce a chemical fertilizer containing nitrogen or urea.
In order to produce ammonia (NH3), nitrogen from the air must be combined at high pressure with hydrogen obtained from oil or natural gas. Urea (CH4N2O) is produced by combining ammonia with carbon dioxide.

In a fertilizer plant, reaction heat of the synthesis process is recovered and utilized to run mechanical drive steam turbines.
