Material type: materialTypeLabelArticlePublisher: 1985Subject(s): Cost analysis | Efficiency | Energy | Prices | Production | Nitrogen fertilizers AGROVOC In: Energy in Agriculture v. 4, no. 2, p. 159-177609909Summary: This paper deals with estimating energy consumption and potential energy savings by improving energy efficiency for production of selected nitrogen fertilizers. It also discusses economic importance, economic consequences, and policy implications of improving energy efficiency for nitrogen fertilizer production. Improving energy efficiency is one of the most important and viable policy options to lower nitrogen fertilizer prices. Three strategies to improve energy efficiency for nitrogen fertilizer production are discussed: (1) energy efficient retrofits;(2) energy efficient new processes;and (3) operational efficiency and energy management.
