Main Article Content


Purpose: This study was done to present a detailed review and analysis of the extraction of ammonia from a range of waste sources.

Methodology: Ten excellent quality kinds of literature were selected for this study. In each literature, the authors have analysed, reviewed and described the adopted methodology, main findings and shortcomings of original research papers. 

Main Findings: Extraction of ammonia is a challenge as well as an opportunity, due to its potential application in fertilizer and hydrogen production.

Novelty: Unlike other reviews, it is detailed in nature. The authors have reviewed the methodology, important tables, and images from the original literature.
