Phosphate project: Decommissioning of agricultural lands approved


The Council of Ministers has approved on Thursday the decommissioning of the agricultural lands related to the phosphate exploitation and processing in Tebessa (580 km east of Algiers) in the east of Algeria. The project is as part of an Algerian-Chinese partnership.


The Council of Ministers has validated, in accordance with the law, two agricultural land decommissioning operations, linked to the achievement of a major phosphate mining and processing investment in the East of the country, as part of an Algerian-Chinese partnership.

The first decommissioning concerns 496 hectares of low-yielding agricultural land, scattered through the provinces of El Tarf, Guelma, Souk Ahras and Tebessa, for the duplication and modernization over 394 kilometers of the mining railway, from the phosphate deposit in the wilaya of Tebessa at the port of Annaba.

The second decommissioning concerns 4.5 hectares of undeveloped farmland and maquis in the commune of FILFILA (province of Skikda). This land base will host a seawater desalination plant, with a capacity of 70,000 cubic meters per day, intended, in particular, for two fertilizer production units in the area of ​​HADJR SOUD (province of Skikda).
