The plant produced ammonium nitrate fertilizer concentration of 33.5% urea fertilizers, urea concentration of 46.5% urea fertilizers, with reference to the safety sheets (material safety data sheet) at both the world it is clear that this material is not explosive and does not burn but decomposes heat.



• U.S. people around the factory that the factory Bakth Alqlatr of the night, leading to the emergence of a large cloud of pollutants in the atmosphere of the factory?


The fertilizer plants are different from cement plants, there is no filters, but is dealing with pollution at the source where they are to benefit from the gases to return her to the production process, leading to increased economic return. But what passers-by noticed a large cloud on the factory That output of water vapor as a result of massive cooling water for industrial processes, the plant until it is re-use water cooling instead of being dumped into waterways either reason not to see the steam clock That is the result of cold weather at night and this steam temperature higher than the air temperature and condensation Vtbdavy such as what is happening in exhaled air in the winter.
