Project for the catalytic reduction of N2O emissions with a secondary catalyst inside the ammonia reactor of the No. 9 nitric acid plant at African Explosives Ltd (“AEL”), South Africa


The sole purpose of the project activity is significantly reducing levels of N2O emissions from the production of nitric acid at AEL’s nitric acid plant in South Africa, by implementation of a secondary N2O abatement catalyst. N2O has a high global warming potential, every ton of N2O has the same effect as around 300 tons of CO2.
