Single Super Phosphate (SSP) is a phosphate-based fertilizer produced by mixing phosphate concentrate with sulphuric acid. MBAC plans to construct both a sulphuric acid plant and an SSP granulation plant with a capacity of approximately 540,000 tonnes per annum. In addition, it plans to construct a flotation plant at the Itafós Mine to beneficiate the phosphate ore (P2O5) content of the phosphate rock from 5%-6% to 28%-30%, the grade necessary to produce SSP. With these input components, MBAC will be able to produce for sale various fertilizer products including SSP.

The mine, mill and fertilizer plants are expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2012.
