The company's Green River, Wyoming operation is one of the largest soda ash facilities in North America. It contains an underground trona mine and a surface refining plant to process the trona ore into soda ash. It is jointly owned by Tata Chemicals North America (75%) and Owens Illinois (25%), a world leader in glass container manufacture.
General Chemical was acquired by Tata Chemicals in March 2008, making the Tata company the second largest soda ash maker in the world.
