1. Kazan Soda

    Kazan Soda is our newest production facility

    Established in 2011, Kazan started commercial operations at the end of 2017 following our investment of over US$ 2 billion to develop the facility. After a period of ramp up during 2018 and 2019, Kazan today produces over 2.5 million tonnes of Soda Ash and 200,000 tonnes of sodium bicarbonate every year. During the next two years, we will invest over US$ 80 million to increase production by a further 600,000 tonnes of Soda Ash per year by 2023 and further reduce our unit production costs.

    The Kazan facility has over 45 years of remaining mineable trona reserves which are extracted using solution mining. The production plant consists of three sub-units : mining, processing and a gas-powered cogen facility producing power and steam for use in the plant and with excess power generation exported to the State grid. The plant was designed and engineered by TCC, one of the world’s leading engineering companies, and utilises Siemens turbine and power plant technology, rotating equipment and control systems.

  2. Eti Soda

    First established in 1998

    Eti Soda is located in the same geographic region as Kazan Soda, and has been successfully producing for over 10 years. Following over US$ 700 million of initial investment, commercial operations started in 2009. We further expanded our production facilities in 2017 and today Eti Soda produces over 1.65 million tonnes of Soda Ash and 200,000 tonnes of sodium bicarbonate every year.

    Eti Soda was the first facility in the world to utilise innovative solution mining technology on a commercial scale and has almost 25 years of remaining mineable trona reserves. The production plant consists of three sub-units : mining, processing and a coal-powered cogen facility producing power and steam for use in the plant. The plant was designed and engineered by TCC and CMEC, and utilises Siemens and Goulds rotating equipment and control systems.

  3. Ciner Wyoming

    We acquired this facility in 2015, but the mine has been operating since 1962

    Ciner Wyoming is located near Green River, Wyoming, USA, in the heart of the world’s largest trona resource basin. Today, we produce around 2.5 million tonnes of Soda Ash every year. During the next two years, we will be investing over US$ 300 million to expand and upgrade this facility, increasing production by a further 1.0 million tonnes per year by 2023 and further reducing our unit production costs.

    Ciner Wyoming has almost 60 years of remaining mineable trona reserves, which are extracted using conventional underground mechanical mining and processed using monohydrate production technology in six active processing units. We also utilise natural deca rehydration in our four evaporation ponds, to further improve Soda Ash recovery rates and drive cost efficiencies. During 2020, we will be bringing on-steam a new gas-powered cogen facility that will provide around 30% of our current electricity needs.

  4. Derince Port

    In Turkey, our main export terminal is Derince Port

    Over 85% of our production from Turkey is exported, with almost 70% exported in bulk from our dedicated port facility at Derince. Approximately 300 km from our production facilities, Derince Port has a 330m long pier that can load the world’s largest bulk carrier ships at a rate of over 2,200 tonnes per hour. We also export in 27 tonne container liner bags and 1.25 tonne bags from other port facilities.
