Nitrogen Fixation

Nitrogen Fixation is the process by which atmospheric nitrogen is converted to Ammonia (NH3).

N2 in the atmosphere is relatively inert, so to allow Nitrogen to actually enter the biosphere (for use in other ways, such as biosynthesis) fixation must occur. It is also useful for humans to assist this fixation, to create desired products for energy usage.

Haber-Bosch Process

The Haber Process is the industrial way of fixating nitrogen by reacting it with hydrogen. This process has not changed much in ~100 years.

Fixation to NO2

Certain types of Prokaryotes (both Archea and Bacteria are able to convert N2 to NO2 - often causing other organisms to form symbiotic relationships with them.
