Orica Nitric Acid Plant 1 - Nitrous Oxide Abatement from Nitric Acid Production
9238-1983
The Orica plant site operates two Nitric Acid plants. The Nitrous Oxide Abatement Project consists of the installation of a dedicated secondary catalyst in Orica's Nitric Acid Plant 1 (NAP 1) below the precious metal catalyst gauze to abate the nitrous oxide (N2O).
The Orica plant produces low density prilled ammonium nitrate which is used in mining, construction and logging industries. The Nap 1 plant is currenlty producing approximately 890 tonnes per day of Nitric Acid. During the production process, the oxidation reaction of ammonia takes place on a platinum-rhodium catalyst where a side reaction produces N2O creating the opportunity to employ a technology for its abatement.
In May 2008 Orica installed a Heraeus N2O abatement catalyst (HR-SC) to abate N2O emissions from NAP 1.
