KASSEL, GERMANY: K+S AG said that it will increase capacity for magnesium sulphate anhydrous, with the commissioning of a new facility at the Wintershall site of the Werra plant. Over the past 3 years, K+S has invested about € 34 million in the new facility. The new facility will not only produce magnesium sulphate anhydrous but also the animal feed product KaSa Mag 98.

Production capacity will therefore increase by considerably more than half which enables K+S to further expand its important market position for this product in Europe. This measure supports the Shaping 2030 strategy, which includes the further expansion of the specialties business.

Magnesium sulphate anhydrous is a product for numerous applications: In the Industry customer segment, for example, the pulp industry requires this product for stabilizing fibers and for bleaching. Customers in Agriculture use it in fertigation (= use of fertilizers in irrigation systems) and as a granulation aid for compound fertilizers amongst others.

"With the significantly higher product availability, we will now be in a much better position to meet the customer needs in Industry and Agriculture and win new customers. In addition, we are strengthening our portfolio of high-quality specialty products with the enhanced supply," said Alexa Hergenröther, CEO of K+S Operating Unit Europe.
