We celebrate 100 years of potash research

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.
