IICT developed eco-friendly ammonia & hydrogen peroxide route alternate to urea based technology which is creating effluent problem. Hydrazine Hydrate technology developed by IICT is cost effective and eco-friendly process. Higher volume capacity plants are to be set up i.e. 5000 tpa & above for economic viability. In this process, chlorine which is used as oxidizing agent in other processes is replaced with hydrogen peroxide. The process involves oxidation of ammonia with Hydrogen peroxide in presence of nitrile or amide group to form an azine which further hydrolyzed to give hydrazine hydrate.
