The Haber Process

Chemistry - Summary.

We have seen in the last few pages
why the industrial conditions for the Haber process are

1) Temperature between 450 °C and 500 °C.
2) Pressure of 200 atm (200 atmospheres).  
3) Use an iron catalyst.                                 

The important thing to remember is that
any industrial process works in a way that gives
the maximum product for the minimum cost.
The cost is not entirely dependant on the
chemistry of the process but also includes health and safety,
energy, transport and the environment.

Now that we have a cost-effective process that produces
lots of ammonia, what do we do with all the ammonia?
