The synthetic light soda ash made by Tata Chemicals North America is a key input in several industries.
Soda ash is an essential ingredient in many familiar products such as glass, soap, powdered detergent, paper, textiles and even food. In fact, it is such a basic material that government and commerce agencies apply soda ash production statistics to gauge the health of an economy.
Tata Chemicals North America makes high-quality soda ash that is in demand by several industries in the US as well as the export market. The soda ash produced in the US is natural soda ash, which requires much less energy, capital and raw materials than synthetic soda ash production, and is a significantly less-costly process.
