Togo’s phosphate output soared 87% in 2020

(Togo First) - From about 700,000 t in 2019, Togo’s phosphate production almost doubled to over 1.3 million t in 2020. This is an 87% increase according to latest data from the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO). 

This surge drove the WAEMU’s output up by 23.5% - the latter reached nearly 2.9 million tons last year. Senegal, which produced 55% of the region’s output, over the period reviewed, recorded a 3% decrease in its production.
