Anhydrous ammonia can cause headline-grabbing disasters, but it’s also responsible for 50% of the food on your table. It all boils down to nitrogen, and the process of turning the inert dinitrogen in our air into useful fertilizer. So what is this stuff, how is it used, and how is something so dangerous also so vital?

Interesting video about some good-to-know kinda stuff 0.o
Thank you folks for putting this video together!

Ya it doesn't need to be like cow poop is everywhere but almost never used.
Cow poop oh it stinks mybe if theres enough of it methane clouds you can collect to use for power but never do.
This stuff dangerous in almost every way to people lets feed are plants this then eat that plant and wonder why are heath is going down oh ya pesticides too.
Keep in mind this chemical fertilizer makes plants grow unnaturally fast making them fun targets for bugs then you need pesticides then bugs get use to that now you need more dangerous pesticides see the problem yet.
No ok well plants will take up these pesticides too and will be in the parts you eat too like a tomato ot pepper yep your also eating a little bit of pesticides too mybe 10 or 30 different kinds just from 1 store.

I find it incredibly difficult to believe that if we weren't manufacturing ammonia to pump into the ground that we'd starve.

Another very rich supply of bat guano can be found right here in the US - Washington DC.

Brilliant video. You literally explained how the atomic structure of nitrogen has had a major effect on world history. And I loved every second of it!

Anhydrous ammonia is also used in the illegal production of meth. I'm sure that has contributed to quite a few "accidents" over the years.

Why is this (at least the first part) targeted at the lower grade school level? And it doesn't mention ammonia is an antidote for bromine inhalation? You don't have to use anhydrous ammonia as fertilizer; you can convert it to salts if you're willing to pay the increased shipping costs. BTW, what isn't toxic? (Helium and neutrinos?) Don't forget Paracelsus!

if ammonia is more efficient than CFCs why dont we use it on household refrigeration? is it only more efficient at industrial scale?

None

Very high quality video. I remember in the 90's drug people dove with cutting equipment and SCUBA in a lake with a pipeline across its floor to cut into it. They never said what happened to the lake but there was a dead patch of trees for what looked like miles from this release. Dopers seem to love the stuff and cause what appears to be the majority of releases. Just saying. Say no to meth.

Wow, yeah we don't use anhydrous ammonia on fields in Finland. It's either solid fertilizer beads, animal poop, ash or compost.

And especially for animal feed growing peas and broad beans is common, they get their nitrogen from air. In organic farming that can be left on the field as fertilizer.

It's "My-not" North Dakota. Nice place. I know it's a nit-pick but it's one of those things that unless you know, you'll never know so I don't fault you. Don't even get started on Cairo, Illinois ;)

And now ammonia is being viewed as an alternate energy source to fossil fuels...

Pretty cool (literally) but lots of problems with how we use this stuff. The process of producing fertilizer relies on fossil fuels, the fertilizer causes pollution in the rivers and ocean, it's not cheap to transport all this stuff which also requires fossil fuels... and all for what? Because bacteria in the soil can't produce enough nitrogen for the plants? What if we stopped killing the soil bacteria (and other very beneficial microorganisms) with our pesticides? Would that help? And wouldn't it be much cheaper to do that than creating this entire industrial fertilizer system?
