General

The Negev Phosphates Chemicals Company at Mishor Rotem, located immediately adjacent to the Dimona reactor, is Israel's only acknowledged nuclear fuel cycle facility.   The Negev is the largest, but the least populated, region of Israel. Resources found in the Negev include copper, iron, manganese, phosphates and uranium. Negev Phosphates Chemicals Company production facilities and phosphate rock mines are located in desert regions. Phosphate mining takes place in the Negev near Beersheba. Phosphate rock produced from the company's three mines (Zin, Oron and Arad) could potentially be incorporated in all products produced. The decision to incorporate phosphate rock from a particular mine for production of specific downstream products is driven by economic considerations.  Rotem Amfert Negev is an integrated, multinational phosphate group manufacturing and marketing a comprehensive range of products based on phosphate rock as raw material and leading to downstream derivatives including phosphoric acids, fertilizers, specialty chemicals and phosphate salts. The Rotem's production capacity includes 1.8 million tpa of fertilizers, 540,000 tpa of P2O5 fertilizer grade phosphoric acid, more than 100,000 tpa (as P2O5) of food grade phosphoric acid, 4 million tpa of phosphate rock, and about 50,000 tpa MKP (monopotassium phosphate).
