The Authority in Potassium and Magnesium
The authority of K+S KALI GmbH is rooted in more than 125 years of mining experience. During this period, we have gathered the world’s most extensive experience on the extraction and refining of potash and magnesium salts. From the very beginning on we have used research and innovative technology to optimise extraction and production processes, as well as product development.
And this is how we use our authority
In order to ensure sustainable food security for an ever-growing world population and efficient plant cultivation – even under adverse climatic conditions – we offer premium fertilisers of natural origin.
For a more effective advisory service on fertilisation we cooperate closely with agricultural experts and scientists; we conduct long-term field trials and transfer the knowledge gathered onto agricultural practice.
In order to render smallholder agriculture in India and in Uganda more efficient, we conduct demonstration projects and intensive trainings, together with local partners.
In order to meet future challenges such as the increasing scarcity of arable land and climate changes we develop strategies, such as increasing the water use efficiency of plants and maintaining soil fertility.
For medical purposes we produce high-purity potassium and magnesium salts, which are tested and certified in accordance with the most stringent industrial standards.
For human nutrition and for animal feeds we produce certified food supplements, thereby contributing to the supply of the vital minerals potassium and magnesium.
We have developed a wide range of products for sophisticated industrial processes, which have proven their efficacy in numerous areas of application.
At the same time, the potash deposits to be found in our mines and deposits are characterised by their very unique composition: They do not only consist of potash-containing minerals, but also include magnesium compounds, mainly magnesium sulphate. This enables us to offer a unique variety of products. Worldwide, K+S KALI GmbH is the only potash producer mining its own crude salts in German mines and processing its own products in Germany – under strict adherence to high German safety standards.
