The salt of the lagoon of Messolonghi
In the area of the lagoon of Messolonghi, we find two salt pans, the White and the Black, with a total area of 14,000 acres. White seems to be the largest salt pan in Greece, with a capacity of about 120,000 tons of salt per year. The production process starts in March and is completed in October, depending on the area's rainfalls.
The sea salt of the lagoon of Messolonghi is pumped and channeled through the compartments (basins) to the crystallizers. After the washing process, salt is transferred to open warehouses forming salt piles. These are the impressive mountains of salt that surprise passers-by.
The process of salt harvest includes many stages and special machines and components, all necessary and suitable for the proper handling of salt and the best final product. Short-term and long-term measurements of meteorological conditions are necessary for the efficient operation of the salt pan. Daily salt density measurements aim to the best quality of the product, which is also tested in the laboratories of the Messolonghi salt pans. Physicochemical analyzes of the final product concern determinations of purity in sodium chloride, sulfate ions, magnesium and calcium ions, etc.
