Middle East provides nearly 90 percent of its Ammonia needs
Ammonia output in the Arab world reached eight million tons in 2000, according to the annual report of the Arab Fertilizer Manufacturers’ Association. This total reflects 80 percent of the potential ammonia production capacity in this region of the world, reported Al-Jazira daily.
The report showed that ammonia produced in the region last year constituted 5.2 percent of the world’s total ammonia production, which hit 155.79 million tons.
Ammonia consumption in the Arab world reached seven million tons in 2000, reflecting an eight percent rise compared with the previous year, 1999. This volume is equivalent to 87.5 percent of ammonia production in these counties during the same year. — (MENA Report)
