Ammonia also finds application in both the ammonia-soda process (also called the solvay process), a widely used method for producing soda ash, and the ostwald process, a method for converting ammonia into nitric acid ammonia is used in various metallurgical processes, including the nitriding of alloy sheets to harden their surfaces because ammonia.
Sustainable ammonia can be produced today: doing so would use electrolyzers to make hydrogen to feed the traditional haber-bosch process in a very few years, new technologies will skip this hydrogen production phase altogether and make ammonia directly from renewable power in an electrochemical cell. Ammonia is a chemical made by bacteria in your intestines and your body's cells while you process protein your body treats ammonia as a waste product it turns it into an amino acid called glutamine and a chemical compound called urea your bloodstream moves the urea to your kidneys, where it is eliminated in your urine but ammonia. The ammonia soda process the reactions involved in the ammonia soda process were discovered by h g dyar and j hemming, about 1838, but owing to the mechanical difficulties, its practical success was not thoroughly established until 1873.
