Committed to sustainable developmentEnvironment
Agrimin believes in caring for the natural environment and aims to produce sustainable fertiliser products that minimise the environmental impacts of global agriculture. Agrimin is committed to managing its own environmental responsibilities during the production of its SOP, as well as offering an alternative to existing chemical and chloride-based potash fertilisers.
The Mackay Potash Project gives Agrimin an opportunity to integrate environmental and social outcomes from the very beginning. The Project has a targeted renewable energy penetration of 58% through the utilisation of a hybrid gas, solar, wind and battery solution. This has contributed to Agrimin’s SOP having one of the lowest carbon footprints associated with any major macro-nutrient fertiliser.
Agrimin has worked diligently to design a project that minimises the impact on the biodiversity within the ecosystems it operates. The Company has undertaken an extensive set of environmental surveys and studies with the aim of developing a comprehensive and holistic understanding of Lake Mackay, the lake’s local and regional significance and potential impacts associated with the Project.
The Company has been operating extensive field programs on Lake Mackay since 2015 and is proud to have never recorded a single significant environmental incident or received an environmental improvement or prohibition notice.
