American Natural Soda Ash Corp. (ANSAC) and Ciner Resources Corporation (Ciner Resources) have reached an agreement for Ciner Resources to exit ANSAC effective December 31, 2020, one year earlier than previously announced. This earlier exit was agreed to by Ciner Resources, ANSAC and ANSACs remaining members in order to allow for a more efficient transition to independently serving customers around the world.

Until the exit date, Ciner Resources will continue to meet its ANSAC membership obligations, which include utilizing ANSAC as Ciner Resources exclusive export sales outlet for U.S.-produced soda ash destined for territories served by ANSAC. Following its exit from ANSAC, Ciner Resources will assume direct responsibility for its export sales and related marketing and logistics requirements that are currently being provided by ANSAC. However, ANSAC has agreed to purchase a limited amount of volume from, and to provide certain logistics services to, Ciner Resources for a limited period after Ciner Resources exit.

ANSACs remaining members are committed to the ANSAC organization and business model, as ANSAC enables us to provide overseas customers with high-quality product through a reliable and efficient supply chain, said Edward Flynn, Chairman of the ANSAC Board of Directors and President of Genesis Alkali.

Ciner Resources early departure will enable us to have a smoother transition from ANSAC while being able to accelerate our integration with Ciner Groups global marketing and distribution network, said Ciner Resources CEO, Oguz Erkan.


Established in 1984, ANSAC operates as the sales, marketing and logistics arm for several leading U.S. producers of high-quality, environmentally-friendlier natural soda ash. As the worlds largest soda ash exporter, ANSAC provides its customers with the ability to reliably produce superior products in end-use industries such as glass, detergents, chemicals, water treatment and lithium batteries.
