Urea manufacturing

Urea is a hot concentrated solution produced by the reaction of ammonia with carbon dioxide. When dissolved with water, this concentrated urea hot-melt liquid becomes an aqueous urea solution or a feedstock for the prilling or granulating process.

  • Prilled urea is used for the technical grade urea market for industrial applications. Prills are small spherical particles. Yara supplies both treated/coated and untreated/uncoated prills depending on your requirements
  • Granular urea becomes fertilizer
