Nitric Acid Production Cost Analysis 2019

Nitric Acid is a highly corrosive mineral acid. It’s largest application is in the fertilizer industry and in the production of ammonium nitrate. About 75-80% of nitric acid is employed for this. Other uses are as precursors for synthesis of other compounds, as oxidant, rocket propellant, cleaning agent, use in woodwork. 

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Nitric Acid production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
