APP-003906 - Proposed Establishment of an Organic Fertiliser Plant on Portion 59 (a Portion of Portion 8) of the Consolidated Farm Okahandja Townlands No. 277, Okahandja, Otjozondjupa Region

Activity 9.2 Any process or activity which requires a permit, license or other form of authorisation, or the modification of or changes to existing facilities for any process or activity which requires an amendment of an existing permit, licence or authorisation or which requires a new permit, licence or authorisation in terms of a law governing the generation or release of emissions, pollution, effluent or waste. Namibia is heavily reliant on imports of fertiliser for agricultural purposes. This leads to increased prices of fertilisers for local farmers, given the high costs of imported blended fertilisers. The lead time of fertiliser transportation and delivery to end consumers is another challenge. HAFA PEAK INVESTMENTS CC has identified an opportunity to establish a fertiliser factory that will enable the reduction in price and lead time for this critical product, it also opens up the market for supplying the rest of the SADC regional countries such as Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, DRC, Botswana etc. with more a more affordable product in a shorter time. Feedstock for this activity will be obtained from Namibia Poultry Industry (NPI). The project site is located north of Okahandja Town Proper, south of the C31 Road to Hochfeld. It is approximately 9 km from the Okahandja Shopping Centre. The proponent appointed Environam Consultants Trading cc (ECT) to undertake the Environmental Assessment (EA) in order to obtain an Environmental Clearance Certificate (ECC) for the activity from the Office of the Environmental Commissioner in the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism (MEFT).
