Lake Katwe Salt Project

The Lake Katwe Salt project was one of the projects implemented by UDC before its holding company was wound up in 1998. UDC incorporated Lake Katwe salt company in 1975 with the mandate to extract, and process salt for both human and industrial use.

Regrettably, it did not produce any salt due to lack of an in-depth chemical analysis to identify the properties within the brine hence resulting into the poor technology design. UDC is in the pro­cess of revamping the Lake Katwe salt project into a chemical plant to pro­duce salt (sodium chloride) for human consumption and by-products to be used in the chemical, pharmaceutical, leather tanning and textile industry.
