Sustainability Mindset

Boron and its derivatives are key to global decarbonization and food security.  We accepted the responsibility and engineered our processes to be sustainable – recycling of key resources such as water and energy, maximizing boron+ production with a minimal footprint, and designing our process around in-situ extraction to minimize surface disruption unlike open pit mining common to the rest of the market.  We are also focused on integrated processes making the best utilization of our boron reserves to deliver a broad portfolio of derivatives targeting the energy, transportation, electronics, and agricultural markets.
