Gespräch unter Tage

Rock salt

More than 250 million years ago, large parts of Europe were covered by the so-called Zechstein Sea - a huge, salt-laden inland sea. Earth displacement and sedimentation by alluvial layers of soil ensured that a precious layer of salt lies deep underground today. Under our premium brand SALDORO, we market this pure, unrefined rock salt as Ursalz. A special feature: We have unique, rare pink deposits in Germany that are sold as SALDORO Ursalz.

Sea salt

One of the places where our sea salt is extracted is in 2500 hectares of salt marshes in the Iberian Natural Park. Heat, sun, wind, and drought are important climatic conditions for salt extraction. The sea water is channeled into shallow basins and dries out naturally and slowly thanks to climatic factors. What remains are salt crystals, which are then traditionally hand-harvested by salt farmers.

Evaporated salt

For the production of evaporated salt, the salty water from salt mines, the so-called brine, is evaporated. The brine is boiled in large, closed containers, where the water evaporates and salt crystals form. The resulting salt slurry is skimmed off, and the evaporated salt obtained is dried, sieved and further processed into our K+S evaporated salts.

Special salts for around the house

Water softening, dishwashing, or icy surfaces: We have many special products in our portfolio that have been specially developed for use in specific areas.

Water softening

Hard water can damage equipment and plumbing. Lime deposits, for example, reduce the efficiency of heating systems, affect household appliances and the performance of fittings. The best solution is a water softener and AXAL® PRO salt tablets, which ensure trouble-free operation. Benefit from the many advantages of soft water.
