Urea Production Cost Analysis 2021

Urea, which is also known as carbamide, is an organic compound with the chemical formula CO(NH2)2. This amide has two –NH2 groups that are joined by a carbonyl (C=O) functional group. It is a colourless as well as odourless solid, which is highly soluble in water, and practically non-toxic (LD is 15 g/kg for rats). It is neither acidic nor alkaline. The body uses it in many processes, especially in nitrogen excretion. 

In the human body, our liver creates urea by combining two ammonia molecules (NH3) along with a molecule of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the urea cycle. Urea is most commonly used in fertilizers as a source of nitrogen (N). It is one of the crucial raw materials for the chemical industry. Urea is also used as a disinfectant and in dentistry for its teeth whitening effects. Carbamide peroxide, better known as urea-hydrogen peroxide, is a water-soluble, white crystalline solid compound with hydrogen peroxide and urea. Since it is a source of hydrogen peroxide, it can be found in disinfecting as well as in dental bleaching products. 

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Urea 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.
