Genesis Energy will invest $300 million to increase its soda ash glassmaking raw material facility.

The US company said it will expand its Granger production facility, at Green River, Wyoming, USA to increase soda ash production by 750 kilotons a year.

The construction of the expansion is scheduled to begin in Q4 this year (2019). The increased production is anticipated to be available for sale in Q2 2022.

During the construction of the expansion, the Granger facility will continue to produce soda ash at current rates.

Grant Sims, Chairman and CEO of Genesis, said: “We look forward to the successful completion of the project, preserving high quality manufacturing jobs in Wyoming and serving our customers with superior quality and supply reliability.”
