We only produce Soda Ash from naturally occurring underground ore, called trona, which is more environmentally friendly than alternative synthetic production methods, which use significantly more energy and water, and produce significantly more CO2 and solid waste. We operate the two lowest cost production facilities in the world – at Eti Soda and Kazan Soda in Turkey.
We are the only company in the world to use innovative solution extraction technology on a commercial scale.
This patented production method injects heated water into the underground ore body, which then dissolves the trona forming brine solution. The brine is then extracted to the surface, and pumped to a central processing facility.
