This study looks at processes involved in the manufacturing of agricultural fertilizers and highlights the opportunities available to apply cleaner production technology in improving input resource efficiency, reduction of waste generated, and minimization of resultant pollution in the plant. Effort has also been made to ensure that such plants are safe for employees and complies with regulatory effluent discharge requirements. The findings could be adapted for any sizeable plant and are of value to entities seeking to achieve world class fertilizer manufacturing standards.
