Sources of Ammonia
June 7, 2020 - June 8, 2020
Ammonia is most commonly found in the following three areas:
Farms – Compost piles on mushroom farms generate ammonia gas and manure pits and any indoor or confined spaces where farm animals are kept can contain ammonia gas.
Refrigeration systems – Ice rinks and ice manufacturing plants use liquid ammonia. If it leaks, it becomes a gas.
Fertilizers and cleaners – Liquid ammonia is often diluted and combined with other chemicals.
