Sodium Carbonate (Soda Ash) Trading Across Industries

Soda ash, also known as sodium carbonate, is an alkali chemical which is mostly produced from sodium chloride and limestone. The compound has a number of uses including manufacturing of glass, paper, rayon, soaps, and detergents. Soda ash also is used to clean the air and soften water.

Soda ash is an essential, but invisible, ingredient in many products which we all use every day.

Over half of all soda ash production is used in glass manufacturing, but it is also used in a wide range of other products, such as powdered detergents, soaps and rechargeable batteries, as well as being used extensively in metallurgical processes, and across the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

Importantly, soda ash is increasingly being used to improve our environment and reduce polluting emissions by removing sulphur dioxide and other harmful chemicals from exhaust fumes in shipping and other industrial flue gas emissions.

Economic recovery across the globe has pushed up demand for soda ash, which is used among others things in glass production that accounts for 50 per cent of the world’s consumption, leading to the price surge.

Soda ash is widely used in the manufacturing of glass as it helps in regulating the temperature of the furnace to attain stability.

The demand for soda ash is being driven by rising construction in emerging economies, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. The chemical is also being used for air purification and water softening as environmental concerns rise. China and India are the major consumers of soda ash with their construction, glass, paper, textiles and cleaning chemicals being the major consumers.
