Chinese alliance to build major acid factory in Egypt
 

January 10, 2020 - A Chinese industrial and construction consortium including China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) has won an $848m contract to build and operate a large phosphoric and sulfuric acid factory in Egypt.  Located near the Abu Tartour phosphate mine in the southwestern New Valley Governorate, the plant will boost Egypt’s standing as a major producer of the acids, which are used in fertilizers, food and beverage manufacture, electronics and other products.  Phosphate producer Wengfu Group and industrial engineer East China Engineering Science & Technology Co. joined CSCEC in signing the contract on 24 December, with Egyptian mineral resources minister Tareq al-Molla and China’s ambassador to Egypt Liao Liqiang on hand to witness.  Commissioned by Egypt’s state-owned Phosphate Misr Company, the plant will have the capacity to produce 500,000 tons of phosphoric acid and 1.6 million tons of sulfuric acid a year.  The Abu Tartour Plateau has a reserve of more than 5 billion tons of phosphate rock, Phosphate Misr says.  CSCEC said the deal “will effectively drive the Chinese phosphorous chemical industry and related Chinese equipment to go global”.  Phosphate production has helped Egypt industrialise. The chairman of Phosphate Misr, Khaled El Ghazaly, writes on the company’s website: “In just over three decades Egypt has managed to transform itself from a small phosphate ore producer to one of the world’s largest producers with a production capacity of 10 Million Tons per year.”

CN and Norfalco sign agreement

 

January 9, 2020 - CN and NorFalco Sales, a division of Glencore Canada Corporation, announced they have signed a new multi-year agreement that will provide freight transportation of Sulphuric Acid from NorFalco’s rail served productions facilities in Sudbury, ON; Rouyn-Noranda, QC; and Valleyfield, QC. The agreement reconfirms CN and NorFalco’s strategic partnership for years to come.  NorFalco is one of North America's largest merchant marketers of sulfuric acid, responsible for the marketing and distribution of about 2 million tons of sulfuric acid per year. Through parent company Glencore, NorFalco has exclusive access to sulfuric acid production from four major North American production facilities and to an unrivaled global sulfuric acid supply and trading network.  “This agreement furthers our strategic partnership with NorFalco reaching new facilities throughout eastern Canada,” said JJ Ruest, president and chief executive officer of CN. “Safety is a core value at CN as it is for NorFalco, and NorFalco has consistently won CN’s Safe Handling Award recognizing customers that meet strict standards for the safe handling and shipment of regulated products. CN will continue working closely with NorFalco thanks to this renewed long term partnership."  “We are pleased to continue our strategic partnership with CN. This agreement provides NorFalco, and our customers, with a reliable rail transportation infrastructure, underpinned with a shared commitment to safety in handling and moving our product throughout our diversified customer base,” said Kunal Sinha, CEO of NorFalco. “We anticipate this agreement will further our strategic growth supported with manageable transportation costs.”
