UK: ICL considering production of polyhalite-based specialty fertilizers

Cleveland Potash Ltd. (CPL), a UK-based company in the ICL Fertilizers group, has performed geological research that indicate that there are more than one billion tons of polyhalite ore beneath the potash layer in its mine. Polyhalite is a mineral that can be used in its natural form as fertilizer for organic agriculture or as raw material in the production of specialty fertilizers. ICL is considering constructing a plant to produce specialty fertilizers and industrial products based on polyhalite in the Tees Valley area, near its potash mine in the UK. The British government announced last April that it views with importance the establishment of a production plant and increased mining activities in that it will result in increased employment in the area, therefore it intends to assist and support the establishment of the production facility through a £15 million grant.
