A Global Leader in Soda Ash Production

Founded in 2015, Ciner (pronounced ‘jin-ner’) Resources Corporation is one of the leading low cost suppliers of natural soda ash. Our facility in Green River, Wyoming has been producing high-quality, environmentally-friendly soda ash and distributing it around the world since 1962.

Our success as a company is a direct result of our people and the values on which our company has been built…Leadership, Integrity, Respect and Commitment. They are not just words to us, they define who we are as a company and how we operate every day. We are very proud of the fact that not only is our soda ash produced in a world class facility that has the fewest emissions per ton, but our employees take a lot of pride in nurturing a culture where safety is a value, not just a priority. It’s how we do business; it’s who we are. At Ciner we truly believe the most important thing to come out of the mine are the miners.

Together with our colleagues in Turkey, our aim is to become the world’s largest producer of low cost natural soda ash.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, we are a division of Ciner Enterprises Inc., the North American subsidiary of Ciner Group in Istanbul, Turkey, and formerly OCI Chemical Corporation.
