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 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.
