Made in Germany
Modern Mining Technology with a Tradition
Each one of our products reflects more than 150 years of experience, the expertise of excellent teams and high quality standards. We extract our potassium salts at our own mines in Germany. Our production facilities are state-of-the-art, and comply with the most stringent safety and environmental standards. We continuously invest in research, in order to develop ever more efficient and sustainable processes. And last but not least: we deliver our products reliably and on time – worldwide. This way we guarantee high-purity salts of best quality. Made in Germany.
Long-term Experience, Advanced Technology
We are not only Europe’s leading potassium producer, but we also offer the most extensive experience worldwide, in the extraction and processing of potassium. In the underground deposits, these natural crude salts have for more than 200 million years been protected from environmental influences and contamination induced by humans. They are extracted and processed into high purity salts at our locations Wintershall, Hattorf and Zielitz. Refining includes highly complex crystallization and purification processes. Our KaliSel production plant in Zielitz is one of the most modern ones of its kind.
Guaranteed to be High-Purity
At our facilities, the production of high-purity salts is subject to stringent quality and hygiene controls. Production systems are closed, efficiently protecting our salts against environmental influences during the manufacturing process, which also includes packaging. Of course we continuously analyse and test the high purity and the components of our products, at our factory laboratories. Each product is completely traceable and provided with information on its shelf life.
Tested and Certified
K+S KALI GmbH has developed its own quality management, based on DIN EN ISO 9001:2008. Implementation is certified by the TüV Nord. Additionally, the production of our high-purity salts for health care and food is audited by other recognised agencies. The Darmstadt Regional Administrative Council and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regularly inspect the production of our pharmaceutical salts in compliance with GMP. The SGS Institut Fresenius audits our KaliSel in accordance with IFS. And our salts for animal feed are certified in accordance with GMP+ and are QS-recognised. Of course all of our salts for health care and food are kosher and halal.
