  • The Production of Ammonia and Its Building Blocks

    577 Words  | 2 Pages

    Also known as azane, ammonia is a chemical compound with one nitrogen and three hydrogen atoms that are tightly bonded together; giving it the formula NH3. At room temperature, ammonia exists in a gaseous state with a colourless form and a pungent smell. It boils at -33.34°C and ammonia used for household uses is usually a mixture of ammonia and water. Ammonia provides the right conditions and nutrition that are needed for the growth of terrestrial organisms. Even in commercial products such as pharmaceuticals

  • A Brief Biography of Henri Louis Le Chatelier

    747 Words  | 3 Pages

    Henri Louis Le Chatelier (i) Henri Louis Le Chatelier was a world renowned chemist known primarily for his work in developing “Le Chatelier’s Principle”. Henri was born to an academic bourgeoisie family on October 8th, 1850, in Paris France (1). Le Chatelier was fortunate as his father, Louis Le Chatelier, was able to teach him the basics of math and science, thus giving him a head start, and due to his parent’s status and wealth he was able to study at several universities (2). Le Chatelier’s earned

  • Comparing The Adaptations For Nitrogenous Excretion Across Three Taxonomic Groups

    removed from the amino acid by a catabolic process called deamination. This process removes the amino group from the amino acid and converts it to ammonia (NH₃). The ammonia is highly toxic and must either be excreted quickly or converted to a less toxic waste product, such as urea or uric acid, and then excreted. Organisms that excrete nitrogen as ammonia (Fig. 1.2) are ammonotelic. Organisms that convert

    nitrogen in ammonia makes many people think that it can double as fertilizer and promote plant growth. However, using household ammonia, which is present in many cleansers, can do more harm than good. Learning the ins and outs of this chemical and its effect on plant growth might make you think twice about using it. Ammonia and Plants Ammonia is presents in soil, water and air, and is an important source of nitrogen to plants. Nitrogen promotes plant growth and improves fruits and seed production, resulting

  • The Vapor Absorption System

    1580 Words  | 7 Pages

    1.4 VAPOR ABSORPTION SYSTEM The attention of the vapor absorption system is growing in the past two decades. The major two advantages are growing up this technology that is low carbon emission technology and low electrical energy required. This system is operated with the help of low heating sources like solar power, geothermal, waste heat, low-pressure steam, and it contributes significant energy conservation. Ecofriendly working fluid leads to reduce the global warming and ozone layer depletion

  • The Fda And The Usda Deems It Safe For Beef Manufacturers

    1625 Words  | 7 Pages

    The FDA and the USDA deem it safe for beef manufacturers to use ammonia in their meat filler. In fact “70% of meat filler contains ammonia” (Avila, “70 Percent of Ground Beef at Supermarkets Contains Pink Slime.”). Millions of Americans consume beef daily, and are unaware of what actually makes up the meat they are consuming. Because the hamburger is such a staple in many American’s diets it didn’t take long for someone to develop a cheap solution to produce more burger product for consumers, and

    fish in the system. Larger biofilters have a great ammonia assimilation capacity and can support greater fish production [43]. From the fish tank water with high ammonia flows into the trickle filter. Since a water-trickles are down over the media, the large surface area and oxygen from the atmosphere allow nitrification bacteria to oxidize ammonia to nitrite and nitrate. Afterwards, the water exits the trickle filter with much reduced ammonia content (see Figure 11) [36]. Trickling filters are

  • The Swine Industry Faces Growing Scrutiny Of Its Environmental Stewardship Practices

    swine industry faces growing scrutiny of its environmental stewardship practices. With the growing water quality concerns the potential impact of an individual operation on the environment depends on terrain, soil, weather, animal concentration, production and waste management strategies, and many other conditions. Some simple strategies to prevent a negative impact include, improved storage, correct application and handling of manure to limit as many negative environmental impacts. If producers can

  • Shale Gas Of Ammonium And Ethylene

    1428 Words  | 6 Pages

    Rogerio RA2 Main Goals: We are interested in using our shale gas stream, which we currently sell as heating fuel, to create another product of value. We are considering taking the shale gas and producing anhydrous ammonia, urea, ammonia sulfate, and ethylene. The main goal is to make a greater profit from our shale gas by selling it as more valuable products rather than solely heating fuel. Specific objectives and requirements: This project aims to create valuable products

  • The Two Arrangements of Water Quality Parameters

    are two arrangements of water quality parameters:  Conservative  Non-conservative Conservative parameters of water which are hardness, alkalinity, salinity, and temperature are not affected significantly by activities of microorganisms. [30] Ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, total nitrogen, pH, phosphorous, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, total dissolved solids, chemical oxygen demand, and oxygen reduction potential which are affected by biological activity are considered as non-conservative.
