Country:

Sector:

Soda production (for the glass, water softening, pulp and paper or detergents industrial processes) generates by-products called lime, which accounts for approximately 40 % of the soda ash production volume.

So far the soda lime has been traditionally used in agriculture as a calcium fertilizer, with limited added value.

  • New application areas for post-soda lime
  • Process/technology for the conversion process
  • Business Case
