What is Sodium Carbonate and how is it used?

  • Soda ash is a white powder with no odor. It is non-toxic, non-explosive, and non-flammable. Soda ash is manufactured in three different grades: dense soda ash, light soda ash, and washing soda.
  • Dense soda ash, which is an anhydrous compound. It is a significant industrial chemical that is widely utilized in the production of a variety of goods.
  • Light soda ash is a pH regulator and buffering material used in a variety of industrial processes.
  • Washing soda is another anhydrous chemical that is made by mixing light soda ash with extra water molecules. It's primarily used to increase the cleaning qualities of soaps and laundry detergents.
  • Natural Soda Ash is produced by mining naturally existing Trona ore and then processing it into Soda Ash that may be sold by a simple process of filtration, concentration, crystallization, and drying.
  • Glass manufacturing accounts for almost half of all soda ash usage, but it's also utilized in producing a variety of other goods, including powdered detergents and soaps, rechargeable batteries, metallurgical operations, and the food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical sectors.
  • Additionally, soda ash is increasingly being utilized to help the environment and reduce polluting emissions by eliminating Sulphur dioxide and other hazardous compounds from ship exhaust fumes and other industrial flue gas emissions.
