GSLM uses the sun as its primary energy source to naturally produce sulfate of potash.
We make our fertilizer by drawing water from the north arm of the Great Salt Lake into solar evaporation ponds formed by a series of earthen dikes. Over the course of three years, solar energy evaporates water from the ponds and yields the potassium and other minerals we harvest.
Environmentally Responsible processes
Sulfate of potash from GSLM is also an environmentally responsible choice.
- Clean Energy. We rely primarily on solar energy for our production process, receive most of our electricity from environmentally favorable cogeneration technology on-site, and usebio-diesel blends of fuel for our vehicles.
- Sustainable Process. We use an environmentally friendly production process that uses no chemicals, generates no toxic waste, and safely returns water and unused minerals to the Great Salt Lake in their natural state as approved by the Utah Department of Environmental Quality.
- Habitat Sensitive. We have operated adjacent to a bird sanctuary for 40 years and have hosted the Utah State University seagull census project for many years.
- OMRI Listed and Suitable for Organic Production. We also offer organic-approved fertilizers used by organic and conventional farmers who grow fruits, vegetables, nuts, and other wholesome foods.
