A federal report at the end of 2009 shows that soda ash production in 2009 in Wyoming dropped for the first time in five years. Wyoming produced about 10.9 million tons of soda ash in 2009, compared to 11.3 million tons in 2008. This figure was, in any case, 25% of the worldwide production of soda ash.
