Fertilizer carrier

EP Minerals' products are highly effective fertilizer carrier/drier additives composed of special grades of natural dried diatomaceous earth or montmorillonite clay and are used to aid in the incorporation of liquid additives (i.e. nitrogen stabilizers, liquid nutrients, insecticides, etc.) in dry fertilizer blends.


From catalyts to kitty litter, animal feed to soil amendments, filter sheet materials to paper and pulp, DE, Perlite and Clay are often used as fillers and blending agents because of their inert properties.

EP Minerals mines the highest quality all-natural diatomaceous earth, perlite and clay for easy blending for the pet litter market. Consumers want all natural and organic when it comes to their pets' products and the environment.

Seed coating

Natural diatomaceous earth (DE) powders are a vital ingredient in high-performance seed coatings.

Soil amendment

EP Minerals' diatomaceous earth and calcined clay products are premium soil amendments designed to reduce water usage, improve drainage, reduce soil compaction and improve plant health.


Today, diatomaceous earth is used in a wide variety of adhesive products such as high performance laminating materials, floor sealant and vinyl flooring and is also used as a filler in many sealants and caulks.

EP Minerals' patented adsorptive granular filter media is the perfect solution for safe and stable removal of arsenic and other contaminants: phosphate, chromium, selenium, fluoride, antimony and lead from drinking water.
