By Samuel Ouma

Kenya has partnered with Australian firm Fortescue Future Industries to manufacture affordable fertilizer.

In the deal signed on Monday, November 7, 2022, in Egypt, Fortescue Future Industries and the Government of Kenya will work together to build a 300MW capacity generation green ammonia and green fertilizer facility by 2025.

President William Ruto, who witnessed the agreement signing, said the move furthers Kenya’s green energy transition.

“The shift will help reduce our reliance on imports, check the high cost of fertilizer, and boost food production,” he said.

Fortescue Executive Chairman and Founder Dr. Andrew Forrest said the partnership will create thousands of new jobs in Kenya.
