DAP Update

DAP, diammonium phosphate, is the main solid phosphate fertilizer. Its excellent handling properties and N-P-K composition 18-46-0 make it well suited to both large- and small-scale agriculture. The production of one tonne of DAP requires 0.23 tonnes of ammonia and 1,175 tonnes of phosphoric acid 40% P2O5 (0.470 tonnes P2O5). Actually this means that the production of one tonne of DAP requires almost one tonne of the fourth element, sulphur.

 

The DAP trade is the dominant element in the phosphate scene, heavily influencing production and prices, some 35-40% of the global output of phosacid is used in DAP manufacture. Nearly half of the global production of DAP is traded across borders, much more than urea, but significantly less than potash.

Natural Gas Snapshot

Natural gas is a fossil fuel used as a source of energy for electricity generation, heating, cooking, fuel for vehicles, and as a chemical feedstock in the manufacture of plastics and other commercially important organic chemicals. Due to environmental reasons, natural gas is considered as the stepping stone between fossil fuels such as coal and oil, and renewable energy such as water, wind, and solar power. Natural gas reserves are estimated at 187 trillion cubic meters in 2015.
