includedProcesses The unit process inventory takes into account the production of urea from ammonia and carbon dioxide. Transports of the intermediate products were included as well as the transport of the fertiliser product from the factory to the regional storehouse. Production and waste treatment of catalysts, coating and packaging of the final fertiliser products were not included. CO2-consumption (733 kg CO2/ton of urea) during production of urea was not included, since CO2 arises as a by-product during the production of ammonia. Infrastructure was included by means of a proxy module.

text According to the reference used for this inventory, the European average is derived from mean values of several fertiliser plants within Europe. The production of raw materials and/or intermediates outside Europe was taken into account by considering the production technology in the respective country and the relative import shares.

technology

Production inventory was derived from detailed literature studies and specifications from the manufacturer, relevant for the European production. Transport specifications of the fertiliser product to the regional department store, which were not included in the reference used for this inventory, were complemented by data given in Patyk & Reinhardt (1997).
