A growing world population and increasing wealth are the key drivers for climate change and pollution. It cannot be denied that climate change and pollution are endangering our livelihood and are becoming the biggest challenge of this century. One solution to stop climate change is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions – in case of the fertilizer industry mainly CO2 and N2O – by following new production routes or by innovative abatement methods.
Ammonia is an essential feedstock for the production of N-fertilizer. During the first part of the webinar thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions will present to the audience the fundamentals of the green hydrogen generation from renewable energy together with an introduction into the synthesis concept for the production of green ammonia and the associated challenges herewith.
During the second part of the webinar the fundamentals of the green nitric acid process will be presented with main focus on environmental protection as N2O and NOx reduction. Environmental protection is ensured by the EnviNOx® system, which is currently the best available technology for the tail gas treatment of a nitric acid plant. An EnviNOx® system enables nitrogen oxides emissions (nitric oxide [NO] and nitrogen dioxide [NO2]) in normal operation to be reduced to below 1 ppm by volume, with emissions of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O) being cut by 99%.
