The Big N. The
Most Powerful Technical Achievement In The US economy.
root of the world economy is anhydrous ammonia.
Only in North America is NH3 directly applied with tremendous
anhydrous ammonia plants in the world are 2,500 to 3,500 tons per
day as per Saudi Arabia.
A new plant at
Freeport, Texas went on line in April at 2,500 tons per day…another
NH3 plant in Iowa, at about 2,300 tons per day…..all in the first
and second quarter of 2018.
In the US most new facilities are owned by Norwegians, Egyptians or
Germans. Koch does not build new plants,
they buy old plants.
This is the
newest NH3 plant now just about ready to go to full production for
Three passes…NH1, NH2, NH3, right here at very high pressures. This
is it, the screaming heart of the system.
The process typically takes three passes to make the highest quality
chemical product in the world.
The N came from the 78 percent atmospheric N2 and the Hydrogen
(Methane CH4) comes from Natural Gas.
NH3 plants have a lot of very low cost Natural Gas thanks to
fracking revolution in the oil fields.
Storage at -28F, A single tank?
Typically there are two storage
cryogenic tanks except for Agrium at Borger, Texas which has no
large cryogenic, low pressure storage tank.
