Nitrogen Fertilizer Technologies

Nitrogen Fertilizer Technologies

The Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) has developed an electrochemical process for producing urea and other nitrogen-based fertilizers which is now available for commercial licensing through the EERC Foundation. The process eliminates the use of natural gas as a requirement for fertilizer production by using electricity instead of fossil fuel. This is a major opportunity for extracting value from wind energy, or another low-cost electricity source, without the need for constructing expensive and hard-to-permit electricity transmission infrastructure.
