Humanity depends on phosphorus, yet few understand the problems associated with this finite resource. We are depleting the Earth’s natural reserve at an exponential rate. Being the second most abundant fertilizer used for food production, utilizing this resource in a sustainable manner has never been more important. Conventional phosphorus fertilizers are far from efficient. More than half of the phosphorus applied will wash into our waterways, causing eutrophication in some of our most important bodies of water.
“More than 100,000 miles of rivers and streams, close to 2.5 million acres of lakes, reservoirs and ponds, and more than 800 square miles of bays and estuaries in the United States have poor water quality because of nitrogen and phosphorus pollution.”

Our mission is essential. We strive to reduce the environmental impact of fertilizer by creating technologies to reduce unwanted loss, provide premium alternatives to conventional sources, and remove nutrients from polluted waste streams. The basis of our technology is to pull phosphorus from sources of pollution to generate a cost-effective fertilizer able to meet the growing demands of global agriculture.
Reducing our dependency on traditional fertilizers is crucial to ensure we meet the global food demands of a growing population. Cost-effective means for supplying and managing nutrients ensure our farmers can produce the food needed while maintaining their commitment to environmental stewardship.
