After nitrogen, potassium is the most important ingredient in plants. The presence of potassium in the trees improves the taste and quality of the fruit, thereby increasing the marketability of the product. The look of this product is solid white.
Potassium Sulfate (SOP) with the chemical formula K2SO4 is a chemical compound with a peculiar ID of 245.7. Its molar mass is 174.259 g / mol. The appearance of this compound is white solid and is one of the important salts of potassium. When chlorine ion is harmful to the plant, it is best to use potassium as a sulfate. Due to the high salinity of our soils and the presence of chlorine ions, the use of potassium sulfate fertilizer over potassium chloride has priority and does not cause chlorine poisoning in the plant. According to the latest statistics released in the fall, by the Ministry of Industry, Mining and Commerce’s Information and Services Portal, the total capacity of active potassium sulfate producing plants in the country is 3 tons. Currently there is no export for this product as the country is a wholly importer of this product and domestic production does not meet a significant percentage of the country’s demand. On the other hand, about 6,000 tons of potassium sulfate has been imported into the country in the past year. Therefore, Imidro plans to build a 6,000-ton unit of potassium sulfate, while preventing currency outflows from meeting the agricultural demand. In this regard, while providing the necessary infrastructure, Imidro is ready to attract investors from the private sector. The construction of this unit will create a total of 5 jobs.
