SQM's products are from natural origin. They are produced from Caliche Ore and Salar Brines, two natural resources found in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile.
In addition, 90% of the energy used in the production process comes from the sun.
SQM has approximately 4,000 hectares of solar evaporation ponds, allowing it to take advantage of significant amounts of energy.
·This method is only possible because the Atacama Desert has extremely high levels of solar radiation, which results in high evaporation rates and facilitates the process of concentration of salts in ponds throughout the year.
·All production processes have environmental impact studies and public access of online monitoring.
