Hattorf site resumes production

Published by , Digital Assistant Editor
World Fertilizer,

After the repairs completed in December, the Hattorf site of the Werra plant has started up again and has resumed full production until further notice. The employees affected by short-time working until now were able to return to their workplaces.

Due to the slightly improved flow of water in the Werra in the meantime, deep-well injection, discharge into the Werra, interim storage of saline solutions below ground, as well as reutilization of tailing pile runoff to flood the Bergmannssegen-Hugo mine – all sites of the Werra plant are now producing to their full extent.

Because the approved injection volume of 5000 m3/d along with discharge into the Werra, as well as other means of disposal, does not permit the full disposal of all saline wastewater, the possibility cannot be ruled out that, should the low water level persist, production might have to be cut back again if no more room is available in the storage basins.
