Working in the Urea Industry. But, what is Urea?

Urea is the most popular and economical of all nitrogen-based fertilisers used worldwide. It is exceptionally versatile and can be used in a range of environmental conditions on a wide variety of crops. Urea is also a major raw material for industrial products, including melamine.

More than 90% of world production of urea is destined for use as a nitrogen-release fertilizer. Urea has the highest nitrogen content of all solid nitrogenous fertilizers in common use. Therefore, it has the lowest transportation costs per unit of nitrogen nutrient. The standard crop-nutrient rating of urea is 46-0-0. Worldwide there are at least 470 urea plants operational with total actual plant capacity of some 175 million metric tons of urea annually.
