Indo Maroc Phosphore SA (IMACID), a Joint Venture, between Chambal and Office Cherifen Des Phosphate (OCP) commenced commercial production in November 1999 at the port of Jorf Lasfar, Morocco. The IMACID Factory produces 3,300 MT per day of Sulphuric Acid. Subsequently, both Chambal and OCP disinvested one third of their respective holdings in IMACID to Tata Chemicals Limited.
