Proudly introducing a new soda ash project in Wyoming

Project West is a new natural soda ash project near Green River that will unleash the global potential of Wyoming’s trona resources

Proudly and Naturally - Wyoming soda ash

Why will Wyoming drive the global soda ash market?

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.

With the ever-increasing worldwide demand for soda ash, the opportunity for Wyoming is right now.

Join us to help deliver Wyoming's natural soda ash to the world!
