HPD has been selected to provide evaporation and crystallization technology for the Kouilou Potash Project located in the Republic of Congo, 15 kilometers from the Atlantic port city of Pointe-Noire. The project, which will produce 580,000 tonnes of potash per year, is owned by MagMinerals, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MagIndustries Corp. of Toronto, Canada.
The production process will produce potassium chloride from solution-mined carnallite. HPD will provide a brine concentration system to reconstitute the carnallite directly from solution mining operations. The concentrated carnallite will then be processed in a five-stage crystallization system that shall produce the expected capacity of 580,000 tpa potash to the quality specified by MagMinerals.
