Solvay increase soda ash production

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Solvay plans to increase its annual production capacity of natural soda ash at its Green River plant in Wyoming, US by 150,000 metric tonne as of early next year, to meet growing demand of its US export markets.

Construction works have already begun to expand production capacity at Solvay’s Green River trona mine from more than 2 million metric tonne a year currently. Green River’s best-in-class industrial mining assets produce natural soda, used in glass manufacturing, from the trona mineral. Green River is Solvay’s largest US production site, with more than 400 employees.

“This capacity expansion is an important step in Solvay’s three-year action plan to reinforce its global leadership in soda ash by addressing different regional market dynamics. In line with the plan, announced last June, the Group is gradually expanding its US production capacity by about 12 per cent,” said Christophe Clemente, President, Soda Ash & Derivatives global business unit, Solvay.
