Soda Ash - Overview

Soda ash, or in chemical name known as sodium carbonate (Na2CO3), is an alkali chemical extracted from the mineral trona or naturally coming about sodium carbonate-bearing brines (both called as natural soda ash), the mineral nahcolite (called as natural sodium bicarbonate, from which soda ash can be generated), or produced from one of several chemical processes (referred to as synthetic soda ash). Soda  is made in three major grades: light, medium and dense. They have the same chemistry but differ only  in physical properties such as bulk density, particle size and shape (which affect flow properties and angle of repose).

History of Soda Ash

It is started about 50 million years ago. Volcanic activity,  plant rot, and climate change caused large lakes to evaporate, leaving the world’s largest trona deposits on the Green River, Wyoming. Ancient Egyptians dug dry sediments on the seabed and used soda to make glass ornaments and vessels. The Romans used the soda to bake bread, made glass, and for  medicinal purposes. Soda has been used in production for over 5000 years. Until the 19th century, soda  was made from the ashes of plants grown in sodium-rich soil. This method was so popular so that the powder was named “Soda Ash”. Soda mined from today’s Trona deposit is one of the world’s most plentiful natural resources.


Soda Ash has a numerous industrial applications such as glass, soap and detergent, chemical, food, textile and other industries.
