Diatomaceous Earth, also known as D.E., diatomite, or kieselgur/kieselguhr, is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into a fine white to off-white powder. It has a particle size ranging from less than 3 micrometres to more than 1 millimetre, but typically 10 to 200 micrometres. The properties which make Diatomaceous Earth valuable include low density, high porosity, high surface area, abrasiveness, insulating properties, inertness, absorptive capacity, brightness, and high silica content. It is mainly used as filter aids, fillers, absorbents etc.
The Diatomaceous Earth sales will reach about 2853.5 K MT in 2017 from 2371.6 K MT in 2012 at an average growth rate of more than 3.79%.
At present, Diatomaceous Earth consumption market mainly concentrated in Europe, USA, China and Japan.
