Globally, about half of all soda ash is consumed by the glass industry. Flat glass for autos, homes and office buildings, and container glass for consumer products, are the two largest segments. Other glass-related uses include lighting, glassware, display screens for consumer electronics and solar panels. Soda ash reduces the melting temperature of sand used in glass formulations, and alkali helps aid in the “workability” or forming of the glass product.
Soda ash is widely used in soaps, detergents, and other cleaning products. It is a good source of alkalinity for pH adjustment and is an effective component for softening water. It also provides the sodium source for the production of pharmaceuticals, food preservatives, adhesives, and pulp and paper.
Our natural soda ash is a versatile, essential component of many products and vital product uses that touch our lives every day.
