Technical urea

You can get Urea in two forms

  • Urea prills – small spherical particles used as Urea in many industrial applications and for animal feed. Yara can supply you with Urea prills with or without anti-caking agent.
  • Granular Urea – technical grade granules. Granules are also used for fertilizer.

We deliver consistent quality levels by focusing on every phase of the process, from manufacturing and handling to delivery. We do daily samples of our production in our in-house labs.

Our quality assurance is key for our clients in the resin, woodpanel, pharmaceutical, agri-food and animal feed industries.

Animal feed

Animal feed urea is a nutritional additive used in diets for ruminant livestock such as cattle, sheep and goats. It promotes feed digestibility and intake. Feed Grade Urea is classified as a feed additive. Within the EU, feed grade urea is approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) as safe for animal and human consumption.

How we produce Urea

  1. Urea is produced by the reaction of ammonia with carbon dioxide to form a hot melt.
  2. When mixed with water, this hot melt becomes an aqueous Urea solution or a raw material for producing Urea granules or prills.

Our main Urea-producing factories are in Germany, France and The Netherlands. All have ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification, while our France and Netherlands plants are also OHSAS-certified.
