Fertilizer Urea     -    Urea    is    an    organic    compound,    which    in    its    solid    form    is colourless,   odourless,   neither   acidic   nor   basic,   highly   soluble   in   water, and   relatively   non-toxic.   In   application   urea   is   widely   used   in   fertilizers and   animal   feed   as   a   convenient   source   of   nitrogen   nutrients   and   is also an important feedstock for the chemical industry.   Other fertilizers include: NPK; Phosphoric Acid. Petrochemicals Diesel    -   Produced   from   the   fractional   distillation   of   crude   oil   between 200   °C   (392   °F)   and   350   °C   (662   °F)   at   atmospheric   pressure,   this product   is   widely   used   throughout   the   world   for   use   in   Diesel   engines and is supplied by CRC® with a minimum Sulphur content of 500ppm. Bitumen    -   Bitumen   is   a   mixture   of   organic   liquids   that   are   highly viscous,    black,    sticky,    entirely    soluble    in    carbon    disulphide,    and composed     primarily     of     highly     condensed     polycyclic     aromatic hydrocarbons.   Bitumen   is   primarily   used   for   paving   roads.   Its   other uses   are   for   bituminous   waterproofing   products,   including   the   use   of bitumen in the production of roofing felt and for sealing flat roofs. Lubricants    -   Containing   90%   base   oil   and   less   than   10%   additives, Lubricants   in   their   various   mixtures   and   ratios   have   a   wide   spectrum   of application   such   as   keeping   moving   parts   apart,   Reducing   friction, transferring   heat,   carrying   away   contaminants   &   debris,   transmitting   of power,   protection   against   wearing   &   corrosion,   sealant   for   gasses   and to stop the risk of smoke and fire. o Hydraulic Oils o Engine Oils o Transmission Oils o Transformer Oils o Greas Other   petrochemical   chemical   products   available:   Base   Oil;   Fuel   Oil;   Xylene; Synthetic Ethanol; Paraffin Oil (Kerosene); Benzene.
ECM ining    Ltd    supplies    commodities    on    contract    to    the    mining,    agriculture   and chemical industries Core   commodities   traded   at   ECM ining   Ltd Mining  Sulphuric Acid    -   Sulphuric   acid   is   a   strong   mineral   acid   that   is   soluble in   water   at   all   concentrations.   A   central   substance   in   the   chemical industry,   it   takes   the   form   of   a   colourless   to   dark   grey,   light   yellow   or light    purple,    slightly    turbid,    oily,    corrosive    liquid.    Principal    uses    for sulphuric       acid       include       lead-acid       batteries       for       vehicles, ore     processing,     fertiliser     manufacturing,     oil     refining,     wastewater processing and chemical synthesis. Sulphur    -   Sulphur   is   an   abundant,   multivalent   non-metal.   Sulphur   in   its native    form    is    a    yellow    crystalline    solid.    It    is    heavily    used    in    the manufacture   of   Sulphuric   Acid,   which   is   an   essential   product   in   the extraction/recovery   of   Non   Ferrous   metals   such   as   Copper   &   Cobalt   in the    form    of    Sulphates.    Its    other    commercial    uses    are    primarily    in fertilizers, insecticides and fungicides. Caustic   soda    -   Sodium   hydroxide   (NaOH),   also   known   as   lye   and caustic   soda,   is   a   caustic   metallic   base.   It   is   used   in   many   industries, mostly   as   a   strong   chemical   base   in   the   manufacture   of   pulp   and paper,   textiles,   drinking   water,   soaps   and   detergents   and   as   a   drain cleaner.   Pure   sodium   hydroxide   is   a   white   solid;   available   in   pellets, flakes,   granules   and   as   a   50%   saturated   solution.   It   is   hygroscopic   and readily   absorbs   water   from   the   air,   so   it   should   be   stored   in   an   airtight container.   It   is   very   soluble   in   water   with   liberation   of   heat.   It   also dissolves   in   ethanol   and   methanol,   though   it   exhibits   lower   solubility   in these solvents than does potassium hydroxide. Quicklime    -   Chemically   known   as   Calcium   Oxide,   this   is   a   white, caustic,   crystalline   product   which   is   accomplished   by   heating   Lime containing   CaCO3   at   a   temperature   of   825   ºC,   known   as   Calcination, this   process   liberates   a   molecule   of   Carbon   Dioxide   leaving   CaO.   Lime has   multiple   uses,   some   of   which   are   for   use   with   mortar   and   plaster, medicinal    purposes,    insecticides,    plant    and    animal    food,    laboratory reagent   for   gas   absorption,   precipitation,   dehydration   etc.   and   also   as a reagent in the manufacture of paper, high grade metals and cement.
