In this context, Asmidal, a subsidiary of Sonatrach group, sets ambitious targets for the production of fertilizers. These objectives should enable Algeria to go beyond self-sufficiency, which is already guaranteed as regards nitrogen fertilizers, but also to play a leading role on the international market. In this context, Asmidal CEO Mohamed Taher Heouaine said yesterday on the sidelines of the 5th National Congress of the National Union of Agricultural Engineers that the group aims to increase nitrogen fertilizer production to more than 12 million tons per year. The same official also pointed out that Asmidal’s current production meets 100 % of the national nitrogen fertilizer needs, while 70 % of the phosphate fertilizer needs are met, highlighting the group’s efforts to increase production within the company ‘Fertial’ in order to meet the national nitrogen fertilizer needs from next year.
