Anhydrous Ammonia (NH3) is produced by catalytic synthesis of hydronitric mixture; natural gas and nitrogen contained in the atmosphere are the primary raw materials for ammonia production. Ammonia is the basic raw material for production of nitrogen, phosphate and compound fertilizers; it is also used in agriculture and different industries.

Anhydrous ammonia is highly combustible.
Anhydrous ammonia is transported in special ammonia tank cars and tank trucks, in steel balloons, in tankers, and also by ammonia pipeline. Transportation of Anhydrous ammonia in the tank cars and tank trucks is carried out in compliance with dangerous goods regulations applied to this type of transport means. Anhydrous ammonia balloons are transported by all transport means in covered transport facilities, in compliance with dangerous goods regulations applied to this type of transport means.
Anhydrous ammonia is stored in above-ground tanks and storage facilities, in compliance with the safety regulations for above ground storage facilities of Anhydrous ammonia. Anhydrous ammonia balloons are stored in special storage facilities or open areas under shed, protecting balloons from atmospheric precipitation and direct sun rays. Shelf life – 1 year from the date of production.
