Dicalite Europe Announces Temporary Energy Surcharge Policy
Dicalite Europe, a subsidiary of Dicalite Management Group, an international industrial minerals company, announced today that it is implementing a Temporary Energy Surcharge on its Perlite (PE) and Diatomaceous Earth (DE) product lines. The extreme volatility in natural gas prices is creating an unprecedented impact on our business and we are doing everything possible to ensure continuity of supply. Unfortunately, we must institute this surcharge to cover a portion of the incremental energy increases we are absorbing each month. We want to emphasize that this surcharge is temporary and will only be in place during times of extreme natural gas prices.
The energy surcharge will apply to all shipments scheduled to ship on or after March 8th, 2022. This includes orders that are already scheduled for shipment after that date. The surcharge for June shipments is based upon the average gas costs for the month of April, which was 103€/MWh. The surcharge for June shipments results in a 74€/mt surcharge. Beginning July 1st, we will use the May costs to determine the surcharge costs for July shipments.
