Project West is a new natural soda ash project near Green River that will unleash the global potential of Wyoming’s trona resources
Wyoming has the most abundant reserves of trona on the planet, estimated by the USGS at over 23 billion metric tonnes of soda ash equivalent and able to deliver hundreds of years of soda ash supply.
Wyoming’s natural soda ash is the essential ingredient for so many day-to-day items that we can’t live without - glass, detergents, lithium-ion EV batteries, photovoltaic solar panels, food products, numerous household goods and more.
With Project West’s already permitted export facility on the US West Coast, we are ready to ship Wyoming’s natural soda ash internationally, driving the global market.
Wyoming’s natural soda ash produced from Project West will be significantly more cost-competitive and more environmentally friendly than synthetically created product from China or Europe.
Project West is a new, natural soda ash project located in Southwestern Wyoming, initially targeting around 3 million metric tonnes of annual production.
Project West will create 2,000 new construction jobs and more than 400 permanent jobs once operational.
Headquartered in London, UK, WE Soda is the world’s largest producer of natural soda ash, from its world class, already established operations in Turkey and with two projects in Wyoming.
