Mineral Nitrogen Fertilisers Produced from Biomass - Technical Solutions and Emission Recution Possibilities

S. Ahlgren, S. Bernesson, A. Baky, Å. Nordberg & P.-A. Hansson
The production of mineral nitrogen fertilisers is based on fossil resources and represents one of the largest greenhouse gas emission posts in crop cultivation. In this study, the possibility to produce nitrogen fertilisers based on renewable energy, so called green nitrogen fertilisers, is investigated. By using life cycle assessment methodology the greenhouse gas emissions for producing and using green nitrogen was calculated. It was found that by using biomass as raw material for nitrogen fertiliser...
