State enterprise Artyomsol (Donetsk region) has launched the production of purified food salt, according to a press release issued by the company.
To obtain premium quality salt according to state standard 3583:2015, the process of photoseparation was integrated into the existing technology, which allows removing dark inclusions of natural origin (anhydrides) from rock salt.
"As a result, salt has acquired a more attractive appearance, the content of NaCl it grew to 99%," the report says.
The production of purified food salt was launched simultaneously at two mines.
Food salt after additional cleaning corresponds to European quality standards.
The program of reconstruction and modernization of all Artyomsol mines began in 2016. The main investment in the purchase of imported high-tech equipment amounted to UAH 23.5 million, which, according to preliminary calculations, will be paid back in 1.5 years.
The plans include the continuation of technical re-equipment of the mines, the transition to production of purified salt on all production lines.
