Togo’s phosphate output in 2019 stood at nearly 800,000 t

(Togo First) - In 2019, Togo produced nearly 800,000 tons of phosphate (799,775 t), according to data gathered by the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO). The volume, the apex lender said, is 21.5% lower compared to the 1.02 million tons produced the year before.  

Though relatively stable over the past decade, the country’s phosphate output recorded some lows in the last five years; especially in 2016 and 2017 where the volumes stood at 843,000 t and 732,500 t, respectively, compared to 1.15 million t and 1.02 million t in 2015 and 2018. 

These performances, it must be noted, are far below those recorded in previous decades, with an average of about 2 million tons in the 90s (almost 3 million tons in 1991 alone), and 1 million tons in the 2000-2010 decade.
