Fertilizer processor finds that the grass is greener with a stationary fluid-bed dryer
Using a stationary fluid-bed dryer reduces a fertilizer ingredient's degradation.
Along with a growing global population comes a need for increased food production, and a key to meeting this need is fertilizer. One primary ingredient in manufacturing fertilizer is potash. Potash, the third major plant and crop nutrient, is currently produced at a rate exceeding 50 million t/y. Extracted from deep shaft mines, some of the world's largest potash deposits can be found in Canada, Brazil, Germany, and the Permian Basin in the southwestern US.
