Welcome to Foskor (Pty) Ltd.
Foskor is a proudly South African producer of phosphates and phosphoric acid with international exposure. Foskor unlocks shareholder value through the profitable, responsible and sustainable beneficiation of phosphate rock into either phosphoric acid or phosphate-based granular fertilisers sold globally.
Foskor is the only vertically integrated phosphate producer in South Africa. From phosphate-bearing ores, the operations in the Mining Division process phosphate rock concentrate, which is crucial for stimulating and raising crop yields. The Acid Division Plant manufactures sulphuric acid, phosphoric acid and phosphate-based granular fertilisers (MAP and DAP) by using phosphate rock as a raw material.
About 84% of Mining Division's phosphate rock concentrate is railed to Acid Division and the rest is sold externally. The Acid Division exports phosphoric acid to India, Japan, Bangladesh, the Netherlands, Mexico and Dubai. Phosphoric acid has agricultural, industrial, medical and retail applications. Products made from phosphoric acid include catalysts, rust proofing materials, chemical reagents, latex, dental cements, tooth whiteners, toothpaste, disinfectants, food supplements, carbonated beverages, waxes, polishes and animal feeds, among others.
The Acid Division Plant produces sulphuric acid (H2SO4), phosphoric acid (P2O5) and granular fertiliser (MAP/DAP). H2SO4 is primarily an input in the production of P2O5. The granular fertiliser plant operates independently from the acid plants and may be shut down at times when demand is low.
One of the world's largest producers of phosphate and phosphoric acid, Foskor is proudly South African, but internationally focused.
