100 years of history
From a handful of miners under a tent to 21 000 collaborators in careers as various as mining, fundamental research or agronomy, OCP is first and foremost a human adventure. Today, on the occasion of its 100 years and through this website that is dedicated to them, the Group pays tribute to all those that shaped it, generation after generation.

Discovery and exploration of phosphates in Morocco: from geology by hammer to 3D underground Imaging
October 30 ,2020
Since the first forms of exploration of the phosphate resource in Morocco, more than a century ago, the tools and methods of recognition and exploitation of the deposits have not ceased to evolve.
This is the story of a century of innovation, from the beginnings of cartography to the use of digital technology, across which three experts from the OCP Group Cadi Ayyad University and Mohammed VI Polytechnic University will attempt to trace for us in order to open up and develop new horizons for growth.

The hydroinformatisc and the concept of the circular economy: Transport of phosphate by pipeline and recovery of water from its treatment.
November 12 ,2020
Sustainable and responsible management of water resources is a priority for OCP Group. The Slurry Pipeline linking Khouribga to Jorf Lasfar has saved more than 3 million m3 of water. To go even further, OCP has set itself the objective of satisfying 100% of its industrial water needs through recycling and desalination of seawater. Can we now assess the impact of this wastewater reuse on phosphate treatment? What solutions would be considered now ?
Two experts and researchers will answer these and other questions from UM6P's International Water Research Institute (IWRI) during this webinar.
Speakers : Dr. Nabil El Moçayd and Dr. Mohamed Chaker Necibi
