Dicalite Europe Announces Energy Surcharge Transition Policy

March 2023

Dicalite Europe, a subsidiary of Dicalite Management Group, an international industrial minerals company, announced today that it is transitioning its energy surcharge program to a fixed amount as of April 1st 2023. This proactive approach will eliminate the monthly fluctuation in surcharge amounts and allow for consistent pricing for the remainder of the year.  The new surcharge amount will be +55€/mt for all Perlite and Diatomaceous earth business from 1st of April until December 31st, 2023.

Dicalite choose this conservative approach after several discussion with end-users.  The fixed surcharge will avoid monthly impact on our and our end-users business by energy surcharges. In reality, high energy costs resulted in energy surcharges of up to +191€/mt over last 12 month. This change puts the pressure on Dicalite to manage the costs and better hedge the market.

The  modified energy surcharge will apply to all shipments scheduled to ship on or after April 1st, 2023 until Dec 31st, 2023. This includes orders that are already scheduled for shipment after that date.

Quality, service, and reliability remain our focus for serving our customers now and in the future. We thank you for your business and look forward to providing you with many more years of excellent customer service. Please contact our Sales Manager for any questions you may have.
