Potash is the most important source of potassium in fertilizers. Flotation is one of the major methods used to upgrade the potash.

Standard Products and Customized Formulations

Nouryon is the world-leading supplier of collectors to the potash industry, which we have been serving for more than 70 years. For the direct flotation of potash, we deliver either basic amines produced from different types of fatty acids or highly customized special formulations.

In some cases, where clay minerals are present in the ore, a slime flotation step using flotation collectors is undertaken prior to potash flotation. We also offer collectors for reverse flotation of salt from the potash.
