Safer to use than anhydrous ammonia, Ammonia Solution is an efficient alternative reagent for NOx reduction to control emissions in power plants and utilities.
Ammonia Solution, also known as aqueous ammonia or ammonium hydroxide, is ammonia dissolved in water. It can be used directly with SNCR (Selective Non Catalytic Reduction) and SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) systems.
Ammonia Solution is safer to use than anhydrous ammonia since the vapor pressure is greatly reduced by the water. Correctly handled and stored, it is a safe and efficient reagent for NOx treatment in emissions control technology for power plants/utilities.
For control of NOx, when the use of anhydrous ammonia is not possible, Yara recommends the use of Ammonia Solution because:
Yara is a world leader in Ammonia, producing over 7 million tons in 2016. We have been dealing with Ammonia for over a century, and put safety at the heart of all our operations, giving us an exemplary safety record. We are also happy to share our safety expertise with our customers.
Most of our Ammonia is made from natural gas, the cleanest hydrocarbon source available.
Ammonia Solution transport methods include:
We deliver the reagent of your choice from our unique network of plants offering a constant back-up in sourcing.
Ammonia is the ultimate, cost-efficient SNCR and SCR reagent, and safe when handled correctly.
To ensure safety is maintained from production to consumption, we train our own people and contractors extensively, If your staff need training on Ammonia storage and handling, we can answer all your questions and organize training sessions.
You can get expert training or advice on a number of different safety related services, such as:
For peace of mind, Yara can install telemetry systems on your storage facility. This will ensure your reagent stock is constantly monitored remotely and we take full responsibility to make sure your Ammonia Solution levels are always at the level set by you.
Using this web-based remote monitoring system:
If you need storage solutions for your NOx reduction reagents – Ammonia, Ammonia Solution and Urea Solution – we can help you with the design, build and upgrade of storage facilities. This can be as part of your SNCR, SCR or hybrid system installation, or as a stand-alone storage tank solution.
