Abstract:

Nitrogen, which is an essential element in our life and the world around us, has become an important raw material for agriculture and industry. Almost all industrial nitrogen products are derived from ammonia, of which about 85 percent goes to fertilizer use. Thus, a good knowledge of the nitrogen sector, particularly of supply and demand, trading patterns, operational parameters and environmental aspects, is a critical input for a wide range of planning and decision making activities. These include not only considerations at macro-economic levels, such as policy reform and structural adjustment, but also at the micro-economic level, where issues must be addressed such as the need for capacity expansion, production and marketing planning as well as enterprise restructuring and reform. This paper aims at providing a comprehensive coverage of the global nitrogen sector, including supply and demand balances, as well as the impact of such factors as the current world food supply situation, fertilizer and grain inventories, and projected population growth, on supply and demand projections. The Gulf War, recent developments in Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and the former Soviet Union, environmental legislation relating to the manufacture and application of mineral fertilizers, energy and fertilizer pricing policies, and typical investment and operating costs of nitrogen fertilizer projects have also been taken into account.
