About Us

Our company will be engaged in the extraction and processing of potash ore, an essential input for agriculture. Our goal is to create a complete development cycle, extracting potash from underground so it can fertilize Brazilian fields.

Potash comes from the earth and returns to the earth, fortifying food and helping to maintain continuous growth in the agricultural sector, which is one of the main economic drivers in Brazil.

Our operation can considerably reduce greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the international transportation of potash, since we will domestically produce more than 20% of the potash Brazil consumes annually.
