Urea fertilizer is the most important nitrogenous fertilizer. There are two main reasons for urea fertilizer to be the king of fertilizers. Firstly, it has high nitrogen content about 46 percent. Secondly, it is a white crystalline organic chemical compound. It is neutral and can adapt to almost all the land.
Sulfur is one of the most important agricultural and industrial raw materials and is considered a strategic product sulfur is an odorless, tasteless and polyvalent nonmetal which is mostly in the form of yellow crystals and is obtained from sulphide and sulphate. Sulfur occurs naturally in the environment and is the thirteenth most abundant element in the earth’s crust. It can be mined in its elemental form, although this method has declined over the last decade to less than 2% of world production. Today most elemental sulfur is obtained as a co-product recovered from oil and gas production in sweetening process.
Sulfur is the primary source in the production of sulphuric acid, the world’s most widely used chemical. Sulphuric acid is an essential intermediate in many processes in the chemical and manufacturing industries. Sulphuric acid also is used by the fertilizer industry to manufacture primarily phosphates, nitrogen, potassium, and sulphate fertilizers
Cement clinker is a solid material produced in the manufacture of Portland cement as an intermediary product. Clinker occurs as lumps or nodules, usually 3 millimetres (0.12 in) to 25 millimetres (0.98 in) in diameter. It is produced by sintering (fusing together without melting to the point of liquefaction) limestone and aluminosilicate materials such as clay during the cement kiln stage
Diammonium phosphate (DAP) is the world’s most widely used phosphorus fertilizer. It’s made from two common constituents in the fertilizer industry, and its relatively high nutrient content and excellent physical properties make it a popular choice in farming and other industries.
Calcium Ammonium Nitrate is a high-quality top-dressing fertilizer that combines in an ideal ratio (50:50) the two assimilable Nitrogen forms with the Calcium. Nitric Nitrogen (NO 3 ) is immediately absorbed by the roots, covering the current needs of the crops, while the Ammoniacal Nitrogen (ΝΗ 4 ) is absorbed gradually, offering sufficient nutrition to the crops during the following stages of development.
Phosphate rock used for fertilizer is a major NORM due to both uranium and thorium. Phosphate is a common chemical constituent of fertilizer. It is principally mined from apatite and phosphate rocks (phosphorite) in which the concentration of phosphate has been enhanced by sedimentary, igneous, weathering, and biological processes.
