Enhancing Environmental Efficiency through use of Cleaner Production Technology in the Fertilizer Production Industry: A Case Study of FertCo in Zimbabwe

Ignatio Madanhire, Innocent Moyo, Lovemore Kagande

This research study investigates processes involved in the production of fertilizers and seeks to highlight the opportunities available to use Cleaner Production technology to improve on input resource efficiency, reduction of waste generation and minimize resultant pollution in a fertilizer manufacturing plant. Effort has also been made to ensure that such plants are safe for workers and complies with regulatory effluent discharge requirement. The findings can be adapted for any sizeable plant and can be found to be of value to entities seeking to attain world class fertilizer manufacturing standards

Keywords: manufacturing, cleaner production, pollution, waste, resource efficiency
