Bergsbyn, Sweden

About the project

What we are going to build in Bergsbyn, Skellefteå, is something unique. Here, Cinis Fertilizer will produce sustainable mineral fertilizer made from residual products from electric car battery manufacturing and the pulp industry. We will use traditional and proven process technology powered by fossil-free electricity. Our final product, potassium sulfate (SOP), will be an important contribution to the green transformation of agriculture.

Cinis Fertilizer's production facility will be the second in Sweden, after the one currently being built in Köpmanholmen, Örnsköldsvik. Additional production facilities will be established in the Nordic region and USA. The production method that Cinis Fertilizer will use is known as the Glaserite process and has been around since the 1950s. This method of producing SOP is well proven and the technical risk associated with it is low.

What’s going on right now

The Swedish Land and Environment Court has granted Cinis Fertilizer permission to build and operate the company’s production facility in Skellefteå.

Currently no work on site.

Cinis Fertilizer is part of the solution to several major sustainability challenges. Our ability to help the agricultural industry in the necessary shift towards a sustainable approach and reduce the industry’s residual products constitutes a large part of the value we will create for customers, shareholders and employees as well as people and ecosystems worldwide.

For Cinis Fertilizer, it is important to have a dialogue with everyone who lives and works in our immediate area. Our ambition is to have ongoing and transparent communication, create local jobs, contribute to the development of business and sustainable economic conditions, which includes taxes and local collaborations.
