An agreement was signed Tuesday, setting the stage for IJC to provide KEMYAN with 30,000 tons of high-quality concentrated phosphoric acid.

IJC will deliver the quantities agreed upon to KEMYAN beginning in August 2022, through April 2023.

Under the terms of the JD17 million deal, the quantity is subject to double in the following years.

IJC General Manager Ali Al-Ababneh underscored the importance of the agreement in cementing bilateral cooperation.

“The JPMC and its affiliates annually produce about 1.1 million tons of phosphoric acid, of which more than 70 percent is shipped to the international market, while the remaining quantity is used locally for the manufacture of fertilizers,” Ababneh said.
