An integrated industrial complex composed of three companies was created in the delegation of El Hamma, Gabes governorate with a total amount of 20 million dinars.
They are a quarrying company, a lime production company and a feed supplements production company (lime phosphates).
The industrial complex, whose annual production capacity of lime phosphates amounts to 100,000 tons, is expected to generate about 200 job positions, one of the investors in this project told TAP news agency.
