K+S uses a wide range of technical and chemical processing technologies for the extracted raw material.
Processing of raw materials
ESTA procedures and flotation and dissolving/crystallization methods are the main processes used to process up to 40,000 tonnes of crude salt into products at our plants every day. These are then used in agriculture, industry and in the food/feed/pharmaceutical sectors.
Our production employees manage, regulate, and optimize our procedures and technical facilities.
