The company performs ammonium nitrate synthesis accompanied by recovery and recycling of the ammonia contained in the vapor. The synthesis of ammonium nitrate is carried out in both techniques through a nitric acid reaction on the ammonia. When the reaction takes place, vapor is formed, containing a small amount of ammonia. Whereas in the formerly used process the vapor was discharged, it is now washed in nitric acid, which permits recovery and recycling of the ammonia that it contains.
