The ICI Leading Concept Ammonia (LCA) Process

, : The ICI Leading Concept Ammonia (LCA) Process. Special Publication International Fertilizer Development Center ( SP-17): 47-54

This paper discusses a major innovation in ammonia processes and design, the Leading Concept Ammonia (LCA) Process, which has been developed by Imperial Chemical Industries Limited. Compared with the design for the last generation of ammonia plants, the LCA process minimizes the effect of plant size (economy of scale) on the investment required per tonne of daily nameplate capacity and on energy efficency.
