Chemical Heritage Fdn.
Robert H. Multhaup
The story of how The M.W. Kellogg Co. developed the now well-known Kellogg ammonia process. This process revolutionized fertilizer production by cutting production costs to less than half. Its use increased crop production dramatically throughout the world. In the 1960s the process was credited by UNESCO as having “staved off the Malthusian revolution,” since it contributed to an increased food supply that enabled producers to keep up with population growth. This book recounts the vision, dedication, and bold risk-taking that went into formulating this process. This depiction of the engineering profession should stimulate students interested in an engineering career. Illustrates how a process goes from development to successful use. Illustrations.
