  • Potassium nitrate is a chemical compound with the chemical formula KNO3. A naturally occurring mineral source of nitrogen, KNO3 constitutes a critical oxidizing component of black powder gunpowder.
  • Potassium nitrate is the oxidizing component of black powder. Before the large-scale industrial fixation of nitrogen through the Haber process, major sources of potassium nitrate were the deposits crystallizing from cave walls and the draining of decomposing organic material. Dung-heaps were a particularly common source: ammonia from the decomposition of urea and other nitrogenous materials would undergo bacterial oxidation to produce nitrate. It was and is also used as a component in some fertilizers.
  • A control system was developed to convert the hazardous NOx scrubber liquor to a useful, beneficial and marketable fertilizer. The chemical process captures nitrogen tetroxide in water, in which hydrogen peroxide oxidizes the resulting nitrous acid into nitric acid. The nitric acid is neutralized with potassium hydroxide to form the product potassium nitrate. No commercial controller exists that can provide hydrogen peroxide in the concentration range of 0.5 to 5.0 percent.
  • ECEC is one of the earliest engineering companies engaged in potassium fertilizer technology development and project construction in China. 
  • Potassium sulphate, potassium nitrate and potassium phosphates together meet some 7-8% of world fertilizer K2O demand. They are considered to be premium potash fertilizers in relation to the main potash fertilizer product, potassium chloride, and inevitably have attracted considerable investment interest. During the past year supply has exceeded demand, and the prices of all three products have deteriorated, eroding some but not all of the premiums and squeezing the less efficient Producers. If these lower prices become permanent, then the premium products will begin to acquire some of the characteristics of commodity fertilizers for which a different marketing approach is needed.
  • The growth of demand for speciality fertilizer has not only been stronger than the growth in the mainstream sector, but it also appears to have avoided the cycles that are associated with commodity fertilizer. This, too, makes speciality products a potentially attractive area for investments, but by definition specialities form part of a smaller volume business, and its characteristics change as it becomes bigger. competitive advantage among potash suppliers worldwide in the light of the numerous industry mergers and marketing realignments of recent years. 
  • Roughly 10 tons/ day plant need an investment of  Rs.75 lakhs in plant & machinery and working capital of about Rs.125 Lakhs
