Nitric Acid Climate Action Group Project
In a new effort to ramp up climate change mitigation efforts, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) has launched the Nitric Acid Climate Action Group (NACAG). This global action group is targeting nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from the production of nitric acid. Nitrous oxide is a very potent greenhouse gas. One of the main sources of N2O emissions is the production of nitric acid which is predominantly used for producing artificial fertilizer. NACAG’s objective is to incentivize the installation of effective N2O abatement technology in every nitric acid plant worldwide.
