The Minister of Agriculture of Zambia signed the NACAG Declaration on April 8th, 2022. Through this signature, Zambia officially declares its support for the initiative’s goals to reduce nitrous oxide emissions from nitric acid production. Zambia is the 15th country that signed the NACAG Declaration.
The emission reduction potential in this sector in Zambia amounts to approximately 85 000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per year, equal to about 21,000 flights between Lusaka and Berlin.
From March 31st to April 7th, the NACAG Secretariat visited Zambia to conduct a technical feasibility study at the nitric acid producer Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia (NCZ) and discuss the project implementation with political and industrial stakeholders.
