Along with deep processing of natural gas in the amount of 1 thousand cubic meters per year in ammonia it enables low energy consumption and high environmental friendliness. 96% of CO2 emissions, the plant will use in the production of urea and methanol. "This unique technology is eco-friendly and economical," concluded khanbikov. In the world of plants, like Tatarstan "Ammonium".
