Print Description

This Overview captures the Lop Nur Potash Solar Ponds. Located in China’s resource-rich but moisture-poor Xinjiang region, the Taklimakan Desert is a dismal location for agricultural activity. However, the sandy landscape is incredibly rich with potash. This form of potassium salt provides a major nutrient required for plant growth, making it a key ingredient in fertilizer. The salt is pumped to the surface from underground deposits and dried in massive solar ponds that vibrantly extend across the landscape for more than 13 miles.
