      Nitric acid is a strong acid, a powerful oxidizing compound, and a nitrating agent. These properties make it an important basic chemical compound that is used in the production of many important chemicals such as fertilizers, polyurethanes, organic chemical intermediates, pharmaceuticals, synthetic fibers, dyes, insecticides, fungicides, and explosives.   The Humphreys and Glasgow/Bolme nitric acid process is just one example of a new philosophy being applied to the absorption systems of weak nitric acid plants (% by weight). Nitrogen oxide emissions have been reduced from ppm to . The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) uses its best efforts to deliver a high quality copy of the Database and to verify that the data contained therein have been selected on the basis of sound scientific judgment. The Fertilizer Manual, 3rd Edition, is a new, fully updated, comprehensive reference on the technology of fertilizer production. The manual contains engineering flow diagrams and process requirements for all major fertilizer processes including ammonia, urea, phosphates, potassium products and many others.

The EPA is proposing revisions to the new source performance standards (NSPS) for nitric acid plants. Nitric acid plants include one or more nitric acid production units. These proposed revisions include a change to the nitrogen oxides (NO X) emission limit, which applies to each nitric acid production unit commencing construction.

The EPA is finalizing the new source performance standards (NSPS) for nitric acid plants. Nitric acid plants include one or more nitric acid production units (NAPUs). These revisions include a change to the nitrogen oxides (NO X) emission limit, which applies to each NAPU commencing construction, modification, or reconstruction after October Get this from a library.

The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Nitric Acid Plants were initially promulgated in The NSPS was reviewed and the standard was updated on Aug The NSPS regulates emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) from new, modified or reconstructed Nitric Acid Production Units.

New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), mandated under Section of the Clean Air Act (CAA), are directly enforceable federal regulations issued for categories of sources that cause, or contribute significantly to, air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger.

SUMMARY FOR NITRIC ACID PLANTS Approximately 65 plants in the United States produce nitric acid. The ammonia-oxidation process is the most commonly used process for producing weak (50 to 70 percent) nitric acid.

The. The EPA reports that the estimated six nitric acid plants that will be built in the next 5 years will be subject to the Agency’s revised New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for that source category. The nitric acid production NSPS has not seen a significant change since they were first promulgated in   The new ammonia plant was due to start-up in earlybut only became operational in October ; the new urea plant was commissioned in Novemberand the new UAN plant in March Donaldsonville is now "the largest nitrogen facility in the world."

Pollution from Nitric Acid Plants PURIFICATION OF TAIL GAS USING PLATINUM CATALYSTS By R. Searles Johnson Matthey Chemicals Limited, London The tail gas stream from ammonia oxidation plants for the production of nitric acid contains nitrogen oxides, which present a pollution problem.

These pollutants can be eliminated successfully by reduction with a fuel. Nitric acid is also known as: aqua formis (which is Latin for strong water), azotic acid, engraver’s acid, nital, hydrogen nitrate, and spirit of niter. Section 3: Potential Hazards Physical Hazards Nitric acid is typically a liquid ranging from colorless to light yellow.

It is a strong oxidizer that may intensify a fire. the non-fertilizer industry we can supply plants for azeotropic nitric acid. Our EnviNOx® tail gas treatment technology, the gold standard of performance for N 2 O and NOx emission reduction, Know-how that breeds success makes our nitric acid plants environmentally friendly.

If there would have been nitric acid in the air, like Miller () says it travels, the plants may have grown differently. Also, our soil already had fertilizer in it, so some of the nitric acid would have been eliminated before it even reached the root (Starr ).File Size: KB.k° H (mol/kg*bar) d(ln(k H))/d(1/T) (K) Method Reference Comment; R: N/A: missing citation assume the temperature dependence to be the same as for a(H +) a(NO 3-) /.Nitric acid 620 % (wt/ wt) Water Remainder Section 4 – First Aid Measures First Aid NITRIC ACID IS CORROSIVE ON CONTACT AND POISONOUS BY INGESTION AND INHALATION OF ITS VAPOUR.
