Urea is produced by the reaction of Ammonia with carbon dioxide to form a hot “melt”. When mixed with water, this hot-melt liquid becomes an aqueous urea solution or a raw material for producing urea granules or prills.
- Urea prills are small spherical particles used as technical urea in many industrial applications. Yara can supply you with urea prills with or without anti-caking agent, according to your needs.
- Granular urea is used as a fertiliser.
Yara supplies technical urea for the world markets from a number of Production plants with its principle sites being: Brunsbüttel, Germany; LeHavre, France, and Sluiskil in The Netherlands.
