Jordan Phosphates Mines Company (JPMC), one of the world’s largest phosphate producers and a supplier of phosphate rock and phosphate-based fertilisers, has announced a strategic partnership with Waterise, a pioneering Norwegian start-up specialising in deep sea environmentally friendly desalination, to embark on an ambitious deep sea desalination project in the Gulf of Aqaba to meet the increasing water demand at JPMC’s facilities.
