K+S AG, through its subsidiaries, engages in the supply of speciality and standard fertilizers, plant care, and salt products in Germany and internationally. Segments The company operates in five segments: Potash and Magnesium Products, COMPO, Fertiva, Salt, and Complementary Business Segments. Potash and Magnesium Products segment The Potash and Magnesium Products business segment engages in the production and marketing of potash fertilizers and fertilizer specialties, as well as potash and magnesium compounds for technical, industrial and pharmaceutical applications. This segment provides potash and magnesium products in Europe and internationally. COMPO Business Segment The COMPO business segment markets branded products for the consumer sector (garden and lawn fertilizers, plant care products, plant protection agents and potting soils) and specialty fertilizers for the professional sector (horticulture, special crops and agriculture). The COMPO business segment provides premium products in the field of potting soils, specialty fertilizers and plant care products in Europe. COMPO collaborates with the Swiss agricultural business company Syngenta in the area of plant protection agents and pesticides for private users. Fertiva Business Segment The Fertiva business segment engages in the marketing and sales activities for nitrogenous fertilizers, which are purchased from various manufacturers for resale. Salt Business Segment The Salt business segment engages in the production and marketing of food grade salt, industrial salt and salt for chemical use, de-icing salt and sodium chloride brine. The product range of the Salt business segment covers food-grade salts for private households and the food industry, as well as industrial salts for use in many areas of industry (from dyeing works through the production of foodstuffs for animals to use in the exploration of oil and natural gas), as well as in the pharmaceutical industry. Complementary Business Segments This segment offers a range of waste management services, including the underground reutilization and disposal of waste to the distribution of smelting salts to companies in the secondary aluminum industry, including the collection and processing of aluminum salt slag. Furthermore, the other Complementary Business segments' range extends from the granulation of CATSAN cat litter, through its own logistics service provider, to trading activities involving basic chemicals, such as calcium chloride for pre-wetted de-icing agents used by winter road clearance services. In January 2008, the Waste Management and Recycling business segment was grouped together with the service activities bundled in the Services and Trading business segment and the new entity was given the name Complementary Business Segments. In addition to recycling activities and the disposal of waste in potash and rock salt mines, as well as the granulation of CATSAN, the term ‘Complementary Business Segments’ also bundles further activities of importance to the K+S Group. With Kali-Transport Gesel - schaft mbH (KTG), Hamburg, the K+S Group possesses its own logistics service provider. Chemische Fabrik Kalk GmbH (CFK) trades in different basic chemicals.
