Vacuum Thermal Stripping Helps Produce Ammonium Sulfate Granules from Food Waste

Innovative production techniques, such as the vacuum absorption process, are being used by companies in the ammonium sulfate market to produce granules. This technique is necessary since ammonia is often accumulated to a level that inhibits methanogenesis in anaerobic digestion of protein-rich substrates such as dairy manure and food waste. Companies in the ammonium sulfate market are adopting vacuum thermal stripping, since it is being publicized as an acid absorption system, which allows for the recovery of ammonia from digestate.

Ammonia in digestate is being recovered by manufacturers in the ammonium sulfate market as a commodity in the form of ammonium sulfate granules.

Industrial Grade Ammonium Sulfate Acquires Prominence in Leather Industry

There is a growing demand for industrial grade ammonium sulfate. Chemicals company UBE Corporation Europe is using the caprolactam manufacturing process to produce crystalline ammonium sulfate used as a fertilizer and in industrial applications. Manufacturers in the ammonium sulfate market are bolstering their output capacities in industrial grade ammonium sulfate, which is highly soluble in water, has very low organic impurities and low heavy metal content.

Since industrial grade ammonium sulfate cannot be used in food and pharmaceutical applications, manufacturers in the ammonium sulfate market are boosting its usage in additives for the pulp & chipboard industry. The industrial grade ammonium sulfate is being used as a deliming agent in the leather industry.
