K+S AG said Jan. 17 that it has sold its K+S Entsorgung Schweiz AG unit to Switzerland-based Thommen-Furler AG to quickly generate value and reduce indebtedness.
K+S did not disclose the exact amount of the transaction, but said it is in the lower single-digit-million euro range.
The sold unit specializes in the disposal and recovery of inorganic filter dust, sludge and ashes.
K+S said that close cooperation with the waste management unit is envisaged following the company's integration into the Thommen-Furler group.
In December 2019, K+S announced considering the selling of a stake in the Bethune potash project in Saskatchewan.
