SQM's Natural Resources are key elements that allow us to offer the best products and services to our clients. We are constantly searching for the best processes, the most advanced technologies and the most innovative solutions, aimed at maximizing our available resources, while conducting sustainable and efficient production.

We understand that growth is only possible when progressing side by side with our workers and the communities surrounding our facilities. Due to our resources being naturally derived, environmental care is our top priority.

The Atacama Salt Desert, located between the first and second region of Chile, is the expansive area where our nine production facilities are located. There we have exclusive access to natural reserves of unmatchable extent and quality: the largest natural nitrate reserves in the world and the highest potassium concentrations currently recorded.
