Potash

Mosaic works to ensure efficient use of water at our potash facilities. On average, our facilities meet 85% of their water needs by reusing and recycling water. Where the nature of the process precludes a high recycle rate, efforts are being made to reduce consumption in other ways. Our Carlsbad plant for example was able to reduce its rate of water consumption in excess of 10% over this past year, with plans for further reductions going forward.

In order to prevent potential impacts from our operations on offsite water resources, our facilities are operated so that no waters are discharged from the site except for excess brine which is evaporated or injected into deep brine formations.
