More than 500 global fertiliser leaders to attend at CRU’s Phosphates 2018

PPCRU Events has announced to organise Phosphates 2018, the global phosphates industry’s most important conference, at the Mövenpick Mansour Eddahbi Hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco from 12-14 March 2018

The event is organised in participation with International Fertiliser Industry Association (IFA) and will be hosted by OCP, Morocco’s national phosphate company.

Now in its 11th year, the event aims to attract more than 500 commercial and operational decision-makers from across the phosphates and fertiliser supply chain to explore the supply and demand dynamics and the latest mining and production technologies.

Morocco is a hub for investment and innovation in phosphate mining and processing. OCP has been driving an expansion programme both at home and overseas. Registered attendees will have the chance to see the phosphate and fertiliser production first hand by visiting OCP’s Khouribga mining site and the Jorf Lasfar industrial integrated fertiliser platform.

Chris Lawson, head of phosphates at CRU, said, “Phosphate market dynamics have diverged significantly through 2017. Phosphate fertiliser producers are cautiously optimistic, with prices exceeding expectations throughout the past twelve months. Meanwhile, phosphate rock prices continue to slide lower with low cost Moroccan rock winning more market share in 2017.”

“The 2018 CRU phosphates conference has a broad agenda that helps to provide clarity into not only the global market dynamics, but into developments in the specialty/niche fertilisers space and how technology is rapidly changing the future of farming and ultimately, fertiliser demand,” continued Lawson.
