What is soda ash?

Soda ash (chemically known as sodium carbonate or Na₂CO₃) is a simple, safe, alkali salt that is highly soluble in water and the tenth most highly consumed inorganic industrial ingredient in the world.

It is an essential component in a wide variety of industrial processes with no economically feasible and environmentally viable substitute in almost all such processes, and without which most of the industrial consumers of soda ash cannot operate.

It is used in the manufacture of glass, solar panels, electric vehicle batteries, powdered detergents, silicates and sodium-based chemicals and in various other industrial applications. It is also used to produce sodium bicarbonate, which is used in flue gas treatment, food, animal feed and various environmental and healthcare applications.
