Adriano Espeschit, President of Potássio do Brasil, a subsidiary of Brazil Potash, took part in the “Public Policies for Strategic Minerals in Brazil” panel at the Expo & Brazilian Mining Congress (Exposibram 2023) on August 30th, from 9 AM to 11 AM. This event is one of the most significant mining gatherings in Latin America, organized by the Brazilian Mining Institute (Ibram), and it was held from August 28th to 31st at the Hangar Centro de Convenções & Feiras da Amazônia in Belém, PA.

During his panel presentation, President Adriano Espeschit underscored the strategic role of the Autazes Potash Project for both Brazil and the world, particularly in the context of food security. He noted, “Potássio do Brasil can assist Brazilian agribusiness by providing up to 20% of potassium chloride supply. This is crucial, as in agribusiness, we are entirely reliant on imports, accounting for 98% of our consumption.”
