|In the year 2000, the Company QUIMICA DEL ESTRONCIO, S.A. began operations from its factory, culminating an important industrial project developed with its own technology for the production of STRONTIUM CARBONATE from celestite (Strontium Sulphate).
To this end, the company carries out an innovative production process, different from the "Black Ash" process used today, whereby from one of its intermediate stages the raw material for the feedstock of crystallized STRONTIUM NITRATE is produced.
In addition to this, the selected process produces two solutions of AMMONIUM SULPHATE and AMMONIUM NITRATE used for fertilisers.
The nominal production capacity of our plant is 35,000 tpa of Strontium Carbonate representing approximately 10% of world production capacity, and 6,000 tpa of Strontium Nitrate, being the first European factory producing this compound.
|The facilities of QUIMICA DEL ESTRONCIO are situated in a strategic area: the "Valle de Escombreras" in Cartagena (Murcia- Spain); an industrial estate very close to the Commercial Port of the city, from where we can ship different products to our main consumer centres (Japan, India, South East Asia, USA, South Africa, Great Britain, and elsewhere). The supply to Spanish and other European consumers is carried out by road from Cartagena through a consolidated network of expressways and motorways.
The organisation structure of QUIMICA DEL ESTRONCIO is divided into six large areas:
