Urea Production Cost Report

Urea is a nitrogenous compound, with a chemical formula CH4N2O. It is an organic compound, majorly associated with agrochemical, plastic, pharmaceutical, textile, cosmetics, and chemical industries. Urea has a high demand owing to its extensive usage as a nitrogen-release fertilizer and supplement in feed. It is also the key starting material used in manufacturing plastics and drugs. Furthermore, it is also used for many other applications, including as a stabilizer in nitrocellulose explosives; as a reagent in lanthanide chemistry; for manufacturing high explosives such as urea nitrate; as an ingredient in dish-soap; to form personal care products like creams for hair removal and ointments; and to manufacture melamine.

The market for urea is prominently driven by its demand as a crucial component for producing agrochemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, plastic, and chemical products. Its primary usage as a source of nitrogen in the production of fertilizers and feed supplements increases its demand in the agrochemical and agricultural sectors.

Similarly, its involvement in the production of certain personal care products, including hair removal creams and ointments, along with pharmaceutical drugs, bolsters its demand. Moreover, its utilization in the production of nitrocellulose explosives, synthesizing urea nitrate for high explosives, as well as certain pharmaceutical drugs, dyes, plastics, etc., boosts its demand in the plastic and chemical industries. Industrial urea procurement is governed by various factors, including the availability and production cost of its feedstock (including ammonia, phosgene, etc.), the market prices of urea, its distribution (covering transportation and trading activities), and logistics, etc.

Its demand as a pivotal source for agrochemical, chemical, plastic, and textiles industries has a significant impact on its procurement around the world. Therefore, variations in its demand (for medicines, cosmetics, dyes, plastics, and chemicals), along with its supply and variation in prices, directly determine its procurement.

Raw Material for Urea Production

According to the urea manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for urea production includes ammonia-phosgene; ammonia-carbon dioxide; natural gas.

Manufacturing Process of Urea

The extensive urea production cost report consists of the major industrial manufacturing process(es):

  • From Phosgene and Ammonia: The process begins with the chemical reaction between phosgene and ammonia that leads to the formation of urea at the end, along with ammonium chloride as the byproduct of the reaction.
     
  • From Ammonia and Carbon Dioxide: The synthesis begins with the chemical reaction between ammonia and carbon dioxide, which yields ammonium carbamate as the intermediate. It is further dehydrated on heating to produce urea as the final product.
     
  • From Natural Gas: In this reaction, natural gas is nitrogenated (Haber-Bosch Process) and it yields ammonia. It is then reacted with carbon dioxide, resulting in the production of urea as the final product.

Urea, or carbamide, is carbonic acid’s diamide which is the primary nitrogenous end product in protein’s metabolic breakdown, including in all mammals and aquatics. It naturally occurs in mammals’ urine as well as in their bile, blood, milk and perspiration (it’s the many organisms’ waste product). However, due to it being a waste product, it has no physiological function.

Urea has its chemical formula H2NCONH2. It appears to be a colourless, crystalline substance. It looks like a solid white crystal or pellet. It has a density of 1.335 g /cc. It has a melting point of 132.7° C (271° F) and decomposes before boiling. The organic compound comprises two NH2 groups linked by a functional group, carbonyl. It is soluble in water and has a non-toxic nature. It is also odourless and Non-combustible.
