Research & Development

Increasing the benefits for customers and using natural resources as efficiently as possible – these are the main objectives of the research and development team. In this light, the focus of the research and development team is on developing new procedures and improving established production processes, as well as on further improving the quality of the K+S Group product portfolio and developing new products.

K+S opened the new building for the K+S Analytic and Research Center in the heart of our Hesse-Thuringia potash district in 2015. This modern building has its own research facilities. Numerous R&D projects are carried out nationally and internationally at K+S production sites in addition to the research work in our own laboratories. We also work with external research institutes throughout the world. There is an additional focus on analysis. This helps to standardize analytical methods and facilities within the K+S Group as well as performing routine analysis for internal customers. New analytical methods involving salt analysis, environmental analysis, waste and online analysis (PAT) are evaluated, developed and validated for this purpose.
