How do we calculate our costs?

Site Cost (EXW) = Raw material cost (phosphate rock and sulphur)  Conversion Cost (energy, labour, consumables, sustaining capital).

Business Cost = Site Cost Realization Cost (adjustment to site cost to reflect the ex-works value of MOP relative to teh DAP fob Morocco price).

Both costs are calculated against Actual and Capacity operating rates.

Actual Operating Rate: Uses actual production rates achieved in the cost calculations.

Capacity Operating Rate: Uses capacity production rates in the cost calculations.

  • Phosphoric Acid Cost Curve
