Nitrogen Production Cost Analysis 2020

Nitrogen is a chemical element, which was first discovered as well as isolated by the Scottish physician Daniel Rutherford in the year 1772. Nitrogen is known to be the lightest member of group 15 of the periodic table, often called the pnictogens. It is a universal element in the universe, estimated to be about seventh in its total abundance in the Solar System and the Milky Way. 

At a specific temperature and pressure, two atoms of the element bind to form dinitrogen, i.e. a colourless and odourless diatomic gas. Dinitrogen forms about 78% of the Earth's atmosphere that makes it the most widely uncombined element.

Nitrogen occurs in all organisms, mainly in organisms with amino acids and, thus, proteins, in the nucleic acids i.e., DNA and RNA. The human body is composed of about 3% nitrogen by mass. Nitrogen is also the fourth most widely available element in the body after oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. The nitrogen cycle describes the movement of the element from the air into the biosphere, organic compounds, and then, finally, back into the atmosphere.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Nitrogen 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).
