Rockwood Lithium in Latin America

Established in 1980, as SCL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Rockwood Lithium Inc, the company today operates at two production sites; at La Negra, near Antofagasta, and at the Salar de Atacama.

The headquarters is located in Santiago de Chile.

In 1984, Rockwood Litio started the production of Lithium carbonate at its La Negra facility, based on natural brines from the Salar de Atacama, one of the driest deserts on earth.

Potash, for the manufacture of fertilizers, is also recovered at the Salar.
