February 16, 2020 - Egypt's Evergrow is planning to invest a total of 23 billion Egyptian pounds ($1.46 billion) in new and ongoing projects between 2020 and 2023, the company chairman said.  The fertiliser and speciality chemicals producer is planning a 9 billion pounds ($573 million) plant in Aswan to manufacture sulphuric acid and phosphoric acid in a joint venture with Belgium's EcoPhos, Mohammed Alkheshn told Zawya Projects.  He said EcoPhos is an equal stake partner in the company's under-construction dicalcium phosphate (DCP) plant in Sadat City to produce animal feed.  The Evergrow chief didn't disclose the Aswan plant's production capacity but said he expected it to be ready by end-2023.  He also disclosed that the company is planning to build a new 10 billion pounds ($637 million) fertiliser plant in Sadat City.  "The factory would be developed in coordination with two global firms in the fertiliser field, and provide 1,000 direct and 4,000 indirect job opportunities," he said without disclosing the capacity and product mix.  Meanwhile, the 4 billion pounds ($255 million) DCP plant with a total capacity of 110,000 tonnes/year, is expected to start operations by the third quarter of 2020, said Alkheshn.  "Once it comes online, it will increase our annual production capacity by 240,000 tonnes," he said while clarifying that the DCP plant forms the third phase of the fertiliser production complex in Sadat City.  The first two phases combined, he continued, produce 1 million tonnes of speciality fertilisers and chemicals including sulphuric acid, potassium sulphate, calcium chloride, calcium nitrate and NPK fertilisers.  He said investments in the new plant and DCP plant added to the EGP 6 billion ($382 million) investment in the first two phases of the existing complex, would take the company's total investments in Sadat City industrial zone to EGP 20 billion ($1.27 billion).  He said the company is in negotiations with European and Gulf banks to secure loans for financing the new Sadat and Aswan plants but didn't give more details.

October 27, 2017 - EcoPhos has signed a joint venture agreement with Evergrow for the construction of a 110 000 tpy dicalcium phosphate (DCP) factory to produce animal feed.  The new plant will be built in Sadat City and will require an estimated investment of US$120 million. The new complex will comprise plants for the production of low-cadmium fertilizer (100 000 tpy SSP), as well as a sulphuric acid plant (600 tpd) and a CaCl2 plant (60 000 tpy). In addition to these plants, further investment is planned for the construction of an NPK production plant.  The DCP will be sold and distributed by Aliphos. Manufacture will be based on innovative, eco-friendly, low energy technologies developed by EcoPhos that will maximise the value of the raw phosphate mineral obtained directly from the mine.  EcoPhos will provide the technology, the outline and detailed engineering and the equipment for the project.

September 28, 2017 - Evergrow to invest EGP 9.5 bn in new fertilizer plant withtwo foreign partners. Fertilizer producer Evergrow is investing EGP 9.5 bn to build a new plant in Egypt, Trade and Industry Minister Tarek Kabil said yesterday, according to a statement picked up by Reuters. The plant is expected to begin operations by 2020, producing an annual 600k tonnes of fertilizer, 500k tonnes of calcium diphosphate, and 700k tonnes of sulfuric acid. The goal is to export 75% of output to regional and international markets, with a specific focus on East Africa, according to Evergrow’s CEO Mohamed El Kheshen. The new facility will be established in partnership with two international firms that the statement does not name. Funding details have also yet to emerge.

November 8, 2016 -  Belgian phosphate producer EcoPhos has signed a joint venture agreement with Egypt’s Evergrow to build a dicalcium phosphate (DCP) plant as part of a 50:50 joint venture. The jv will construct a plant in Sadat City, 95 km from Cairo, to produce 110,000 t/y DCP for animal feed. The complex will also comprise plants to produce 100,000 t/y low-cadmium fertilizer, 198,000 t/y sulfuric acid and 60,000 t/y calcium chloride.  Investment costs are estimated at $120 million.  EcoPhos will provide the technology, detailed engineering and equipment for the project. The Louvain-la-Neuve-based company added that it is also planning further investment in an NPK plant, but gave no further details. The DCP output will be sold and distributed by Aliphos, EcoPhos’ feed ingredients division. EcoPhos acquired Aliphos from Tessenderlo of the Netherlands in November 2013, gaining a production site in Rotterdam and sales offices in Germany, Spain and Poland.  EcoPhos also started construction of a new phosphate plant in Dunkirk, France, in March this year. An investment of €75 million is being made in the facility, which will start production at the end of 2017. Additional land has been reserved nearby for a possible future expansion. In addition, a fourth phosphate plant with a capacity of 200,000 t/y is planned to open in Dahej, India, in late 2018. This plant is being built in a joint venture with Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers & Chemicals.  EcoPhos has also revealed that other projects are in the pipeline in countries including Brazil, Senegal, Jordan and Morocco. The company has stated its ambition to become Europe’s leading producer of feed phosphate for livestock, targeting an annual output of 1 million t/y at five plants in five countries by 2020, with a turnover of €500 million.  In September, EcoPhos opened a center of excellence, called Technophos and a pilot plant in Varna, Bulgaria. It said the center is the product of its efforts to combine technology, ecology and economy to fight against the world’s phosphate scarcity and potential global food crisis.
