Handling Potash


Potash is a non-toxic potassium salt, mostly used as a crop nutrient in agriculture worldwide. Potassium is the seventh most abundant element in the earth’s crust and is the primary source element in potash. Canada is the world’s largest producer of potash with Saskatchewan producing 90 per cent of the country’s totally output.

Approximately 95% of potash is used for fertilizers. It will be transported to PCT via rail from a potash mine in Saskatchewan.

Virtually all on-site technology that is being used to handle sulphur can also be used to handle potash including our dust control technology, conveyer and shiploading systems.

It is anticipated that PCT will handle up to 2,150,000 tonnes of potash annually, on its way to markets in Asia and other parts of the world.
