Potassium Chloride Plant operates at 10% of its capacity

The Potassium Chloride Plant has a production capacity of 350 thousand tons per year, and today we are producing only 25,000 tons per year, less than 10%,” said Vice Minister for High Energy Technologies, Luis Ferrufino Terceros, yesterday. The plant’s “poor design” caused evaporation pools to collapse and brine extraction equipment to become damaged by flooding in the salt flat during the rainy season. Bolivian Lithium Sites (YLB) calls on insurer Credinform to take care of the loss of brine extraction pumps that were lost underwater.
