Boulby Mine: Producing Polyhalite for Sustainable Agriculture
Boulby Mine's Remarkable Journey in Natural Fertiliser Production
In a story that defies the odds, ICL’s Boulby Mine in East Cleveland, UK, has undergone a remarkable transformation from the brink of uncertainty to becoming a leader in sustainable agriculture. Just five years ago, the mine faced a challenging future as its potash reserves dwindled, putting hundreds of jobs at risk. However, the mine’s revival through Polysulphate, a new natural and organic fertilizer, has not only secured the workers’ employment but also placed it at the forefront of sustainable plant nutrition.
