The report described the ammonia manufacturing industry, the process, emission sources, and available control technology. The domestic ammonia manufacturing industry is entering a sustained period of no growth in production capacity. While there will be an increase in demand for ammonia, particularly in the form of nitrogen fertilizers, the domestic industry has sufficient excess capacity to meet demands at least through 1985. In 1979 a total of 101 synthetic ammonia plants with a rated production capacity of 22.5 Tg (24.8 x 10 to the 16 power tons), or 73 percent of capacity. Approximately 75 percent of the ammonia produced in the United States is used as fertilizer, the remaining ammonia is used as a raw material in the manufacture of polymeric resins, explosives, nitric acid, and other products.
