Ammonia Handling and Shipping Safety Workshop

The next workshop will be held on 15-16 October 2013 in Rotterdam.

Ammonia is explosive and needs to be refrigerated at -33ºC to be stored and transported safely. LPG tankers/vessels are used for its transportation and costs are usually higher than thansporting for other fertilizers. Logistics is an essential factor in the international trade of ammonia, as availability, costs and safety issues associated with ammonia vessels can have a major impact on the returns for producers or the prices ultimately paid by consumers. Ammonia safety is a priority issue for the industry, beyond commercial and legal issues.

The ICIS ammonia handling and shipping safety workshop provides you with the information needed for ensuring safe shipping and handling of anhydrous ammonia at terminals.
