Gensource is a fertilizer development company based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and is on its way to becoming the next fertilizer production company in that province. With a small-scale, green approach to potash production, Gensource believes its technical and business model will be the future of the industry. Gensource operates according to a business plan which has two key elements: (1) vertical integration with the market to ensure that all production capacity built is directed, and pre-sold, to a specific market, eliminating the risk on the market side; and (2) technical innovation that will enable a small and economical potash production facility, which demonstrates environmental leadership within the industry, does not produce salt residue, thus eliminating the risk of decommissioning and requiring no surface brine pond, eliminating the biggest and most negative environmental aspect of potash mining.
