KSM inc. is a fertilizer company with a patented, low-cost production method for Potassium Sulphate (SOP) and Potassium Magnesium Sulphate SOPM fertilizers. The company is developing a 45,000 tonne per year operation located in Tring-Jonction – 80km south of Quebec City. This new process is leading to lower Capex and Opex compared to the more than 100-year-old method using the energy-intensive Mannheim process. The process conditions using much lower temperature are leading to reduced energy consumption and corrosion issues which in return are leading to reduced operating costs, maintenance costs, construction costs and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
