Soda ash (Na2CO3) is used to make the most common type of glass – soda-lime silica glass – which is then used to manufacture flat glass (for windows and automobiles), lighting, glassware, laboratory vessels, televisions and other products as paper, oil refining, the preparation of sodium salts in laundry.

Soda ash acts as the fluxing agent. It is an essential ingredient because it reduces the furnace temperature necessary to melt the silica, thus reducing the energy required to produce glass.

Household Products
Also known as sodium carbonate, soda ash is used in many common household products. Whether it’s the laundry room, the kitchen or the bath, soda ash is a useful additive in many home detergents and cleaning products. The addition of soda ash prevents hard water from bonding with detergent, allowing for a more even distribution of the cleaning agent during the washing cycle. Soda ash is also very effective in removing alcohol and grease stains from clothing.

A large number of formulated domestic products, soaps, scouring powders, soaking and washing powders etc. contain a varying content of soda ash. More and more, soda ash is being used in production of high performance compact powders for both laundry and dish washing. These higher performing products offer value to the consumer while also providing environmental benefits.

Chemical Industry

Soda ash
is an acknowledged source of sodium ions in the production of sodium phosphates, sodium silicates, chrome chemicals and photographic chemicals. It is also used in the production of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), which is an essential ingredient in the beverage, coatings, detergents, food, dialysis, and personal care markets.

For many of these applications, soda ash is interchangeable with caustic soda while also delivering a cost advantage. ANSAC soda ash offers a functional substitute for caustic soda in applications that include:

  • pH adjustment/acid neutralization
  • Manufacturing of sodium chemicals including sodium phosphates, sodium sulfate, sodium sulfite, sodium acetate, sodium nitrite and sodium citrate
  • Kraft pulping
  • Flue gas desulfurization
  • Water treatment
