Nokeng completed its maiden shipment of 10 000DMT Acidspar to the United States in the first week of December 2019 from SABT in Durban harbour. The product, destined for a major customer based in the United States, should arrive in early 2020.
“This shipment achieves the industry benchmark of 97% CaF2 content, critical in the fluorochemical, aluminium and steel sector. We remain focused on ramping up production at Nokeng to full production capacity,” said CEO, Rob Wagner.
