In this episode we chat to Graham Clarke, CEO of Emmerson Plc who are a potash development company focused on the development of the Khemisset Potash Project in Northern Morocco.

Graham is a senior executive of over 30 years with an expertise in potash and polyhalite working for the likes of Cleveland Potash and Sirius Minerals so is someone who understands the industry inside out and I’m interested as you to learn more about the potash industry. Graham talks about the potash industry as a whole and what Emmerson’s plans are moving forward through to construction and production.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Every plant in the world needs six macronutrients in order to grow – phosphorous, potassium, nitrogen, sulphur, magnesium and calcium
  • Around nine global producers provide, collectively, 90% of the world’s supply of potash, meaning that this essential ingredient only comes from a handful of companies.
  • Potash is a vital ingredient in the world of fertilisers – meaning that the world’s supply of crops is reliant on this resource.
  • Mining seems to have acquired a negative image in the media, but we must remember that everything in the world is either grown or mined/extracted.

BEST MOMENTS
