Interested bidders may request the bidding documents via email from Sable Chemical Industries Ltd (firstname.lastname@example.org). The documents and participation are free of charge. The tendering procedure closes at 14:00 CAT on 30 June 2022. Interested participants shall submit all necessary documents to email@example.com in PDF format by this time.

NACAG finances the procurement and installation of the respective technology under a grant agreement signed with Sable Chemicals in April 2021. The signing of the agreement followed the Zimbabwean Government’s firm commitment to ensure the effective and permanent mitigation of nitrous oxide emissions from nitric acid production from 2024 onwards.
Sable Chemicals, founded in 1966, is the sole manufacturer of nitrogenous fertilizer in Zimbabwe. After the installation of equipment, roughly 400.000 tons of CO2 equivalent will be mitigated annually.
