We celebrate 100 years of potash research

10-28-2019
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of potash research, Hessischer Rundfunk broadcast an interesting feature in the Hessenschau.

Systematic research into the extraction and processing of potash salts - at the time a very "young" raw material - began on 28 October 1919 with the founding of a potash research institute in Staßfurt. K+S continues to follow the tradition of this special branch of research to this day and, with the Analytics and Research Centre (AFZ) in Unterbreizbach, Thuringia, has a recognised centre of competence in which potash history continues to be written.
