FertiAngola wants to export fertilizers via train to countries like DRC and Zambia

FertiAngola wants to make fertilizers travel across borders, by train, and reach the markets of some neighboring countries.


The wish was expressed by António Bugalho, general director of the company, who informed that the objective is to export the referred substances to countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRCongo) and Zambia, through the train of the Railway Benguela (CFB).

According to the director general of FertiAngola, there are prospects of starting to export products from the company's factory, from the Industrial Development Pole of Catumbela (PDIC), taking advantage of the Lobito Corridor railway, writes Angop.

Speaking to Angop, the official did not advance "no time horizon". However, he said that there is capacity for the company to explore the region's market, and it is only sufficient that rail traffic is fully operational.

Even if exports are dependent on demand, António Bugalho considered that, with shifts in place, the current production capacity, which is estimated at around 1500 tonnes a day, could reach 3000 tonnes, writes Angop.

He also added that "very easily" they can adapt, reiterating that everything depends on demand. "We will be able to adapt very easily. It all depends on demand", said the official, quoted by Angop.

However, he assumed fertilizers as a niche market for national companies, since Angola has the agricultural potential to double the consumption of these raw materials, writes Angop.

The person in charge also took the opportunity to talk about the factory, whose inauguration took place at the end of last year at the PDIC. Thus, he said that it is "a unit that does not manufacture fertilizers", clarifying that fertilizers are imported in bulk, to later be transformed into different varieties.
