Technical grade urea is a compound organic in nature. Urea is significant in the metabolism of compounds which contain nitrogen. It is a solid, odorless, colorless, highly soluble in water, and practically non-toxic in nature. It easily gets diluted with water.  The human body uses urea in many processes , in particular the excretion of nitrogen. The liver shapes it in the urea cycle, by mixing two molecules of  ammonia  with a carbon dioxide molecule. Urea is broadly used as a source of nitrogen in fertilizers, and is an essential raw material for the chemical industry, laminated boards and animal feed.

Growing agriculture sector worldwide, it is expected that adblue usage will raise, which in turn would significantly boost the usage of technical grade urea. It is also used in fertilizer processing and thus increases the demand for fertilizer to create massive yield and ease of use would facilitate market growth. However, product manufacturing  can lead to environmental issues related to contamination of ammonia in air or water due to inadequate maintenance of the factory which could lead to health danger. Product exposure may lead to contact dermatitis including scratching discoloration and pain.
