Research activity

VNII Galurgii JSC conducts a wide range of research in potash, salt and related industries. In the recent years VNII Galurgii JSC has been focusing on solving tasks for development of technology for potash ore mining and processing in the plants and mines of one of the world potash industry leaders – Uralkali PJSC.

The institute's team of experienced specialists successfully solves current and strategic challenges facing potash and salt industries. The developed and realized scientific-technical and design solutions facilitate a stable operation of plants and mines, issue of competitive products, provide quality scientific-technical service for mining and chemical and salt plants.

Mining and geological research section of VNII Galurgii JSC consists of 8 research laboratories in Perm and Saint Petersburg.

Technological research section consists of 4 research laboratories, two sectors and a semiplant situated in Saint Petersburg and Berezniki.
