Work on the $750 million fertiliser plant in Chiredzi is set to start soon after President Mnangagwa approved the project that is set to add impetus to the ongoing thrust to revive the economy. The plant will convert coal extracted from the vast Mkwasine coalfields into fertiliser, with an aggregate annual production of about 520 000 tonnes. Mining of coal at the state-owned Mkwasine fields has already started, and the project will be undertaken through a joint venture between Verify Engineering, which falls under the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, and a Canadian firm Mcgor Consortium.
