Ammonium nitrate (AN) based fertilizers have to be stored correctly according to the guidelines provided by the fertilizer industry and affiliated associations to avoid contamination of surface and ground water, as they can be an environmental threat.
Borealis L.A.T fertilizers containing less than 80 % AN and less than 28 % nitrogen (N) are classified as non-hazardous, generally non-flammable and non-combustible in the course of progressive thermal decomposition. However, AN fertilizers with high N content (greater than 28 %) behave like strong oxidizing agents which may cause eye irritation. They are considered as hazardous goods in transport (ADR).
