K+S Group wants to gain a foothold in the magnesium sulfate market

The German-based K+S Group has commissioned a new facility to produce magnesium sulfate anhydrous at the Werra plant. Its production capacity therefore will double.

Over the past three years, K+S Group has invested about 34 million euros in the development of magnesium sulfate anhydrous production, and now hopes to strengthen its position in the European market.

Being in great demand among consumers, magnesium sulfate anhydrous is a versatile product which has a lot of applications. In agriculture, for example, it is used as a fertilizer.

“With the significantly higher product availability, we will now be in a much better position to meet the customer needs … and win new customers,” says Alexa Hergenröther, CEO of K+S’s Operating Unit Europe.
