Project related text:
The purpose of the project is to reduce nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions created as by-product in the production of nitric acid (HNO3) at Yara's plant. The ammonia oxidation reactor in the production plant has been equipped with a catalyst developed by Yara. It was estimated that this would reduce nitrous oxide emissions by some 85 per cent. ERUs for the project are issued for any emission reductions below a specified benchmark emission level, which is clearly below the historical emission level. The estimate for the total number of ERUs during 2008-2012 was 121,358 tCO2 in the PDD. The issued amount is 178,218 ERUs until August 31st, 2011.
Current status of the project Operational
Total verified emission reductions 256088.0 t CO2 equivalent
