Marine Urea

Marine urea can be used to blend your own urea solution in an on-ship blending facility. GreenChem sells marine urea in the form of prills. These prills are retailed in bags that can easily be stored on your vessel. You can then make your own urea solution blend to suit your needs. GreenChem packs urea in bags of 25 kg and various sizes of large bags.

What is marine urea?

Urea (CO(NH2)2) is a chemical compound which is produced most often in an integrated ‘Natural gas – Ammonia ­– Urea’ process and used in a wide range of applications.

Production of marine urea

Urea is produced from liquid ammonia and gaseous carbon dioxide at high pressure and temperature. Several chemical reactions occur and the resulting process provides an aqueous urea solution. This urea solution can be adjusted to the required concentration for subsequent use, or converted to solid urea through water evaporation, with subsequent processes of crystallisation, melting, prilling or granulation.
