Cinis Fertilizer has started up the production of environmentally friendly mineral fertilizer

Cinis Fertilizer has started up the production of the mineral fertilizer potassium sulfate at its first production facility in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. With a fossil-free production method, we are the first in the world to produce an environmentally friendly potassium sulfate with a low carbon footprint using industrial waste products as one of the inputs.

Just over a year ago, in mid-February 2023, ground was broken for Cinis Fertilizer’s first production facility for circular and environmentally friendly potassium sulfate in Köpmanholmen, just outside Örnsköldsvik. Now, barely fifteen months after the ground-breaking, Cinis Fertilizer has started up the production.

“The fact that we are the first to produce a mineral fertilizer with a low climate footprint in Sweden feels like history in the making. There is a huge demand for fossil-free produced mineral fertilizer, both in Sweden and in the world. This is an important milestone in agriculture’s green transition,” says Jakob Liedberg, founder and CEO of Cinis Fertilizer.

“This is a green industrial project that has been realized in record time. In the coming weeks, we will now gradually increase production and we expect to have full production for the second half of 2024. This means that we will contribute to reducing the carbon footprint from agriculture already this year,” says Jakob Liedberg.

“I would like to extend a big thank you to all the employees and partners who worked hard to build and put into operation a brand-new production facility in a remarkably short time. The fact that we in all essentials managed to keep the very tough schedule is an outstanding achievement and without your efforts this would not have been possible,” continues Jakob Liedberg.

Cinis Fertilizer’s production facility in Örnsköldsvik is built for a production capacity of 100,000 metric tons of potassium sulfate per year. All potassium sulfate from the production facility in Örnsköldsvik will be delivered to the Dutch fertilizer producer Van Iperen International. The first delivery to Van Iperen International is planned for the second quarter of 2024.

“50 years after Sweden surprised the world with ABBA, it is now reshaping the global fertilizer industry with the first fully sustainable SOP fertilizer and we are very proud to be part of it. As marketing partner of Cinis Fertilizer we very much believe in this beautiful project,” says Erik van den Bergh, CEO Van Iperen International.
