Industrial metabolism of nitrogen

Author: Ayres, Robert U. ; Norberg-Bohm, V.INSEAD Area: Economics and Political Science Series: Working Paper ; 93/11/EPS/TM Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD Centre for the Management of Environmental and Social Responsibility (CMER) 1993.Language: EnglishDescription: 27 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: This paper quantitatively reviews the sources, production processes and economic uses of nitrogen-based chemicals, especially ammonia and its derivates. It attempts to account for production losses, by species, and for losses in use, especially in agriculture, using the materials balance approach. It also discusses the sources of NOx via high temperature combustion processes, especially internal combustion engines and thermal power plants. Data is presented mainly for the U.S. in 1988. These results are compared with other estimates Next title: Industrial metabolism of nitrogen (RV of 93/11/EPS/TM) - Ayres, Robert U.;Norberg-Bohm, V. - 1993 - INSEAD Working Paper
