announced that, effective immediately or as contract terms permit, off-list prices will increase for S-CarbE, purified Sodium Sesquicarbonate
, and feed grade Sodium Bicarbonate as follows:
Magnesium oxide, sodium sesquicarbonate
, and sodium bicarbonate together increase the pH of the ruminal fluid and increase its buffering ability, stabilizing the acid-base status of the rumen (Le Ruyet and Tucker, 1992).
Tronox Limited (TROX) said on Friday that its Tronox Alkali business has announced an increase in off-list prices for S-Carb purified sodium sesquicarbonate
by USD7/ton FOB Westvaco, Wyo.
In most cases the active ingredients are sodium sesquicarbonate
and various polymers that fall under the umbrella of "polycarboxylates.
Through the SO3 mitigation technology, a naturally occurring mineral chemically known as sodium sesquicarbonate
(the raw material for soda ash), is injected in dry form into the flue gas stream.
FMC also produces other sodium chemicals, including lime soda/caustic soda, sodium bicarbonate, sodium sesquicarbonate
, sodium cyanide, and sodium phosphates at the Green River site.
will increase prices for its feed grade sodium bicarbonate and sodium sesquicarbonate
products effective December 1, 2002.
Besides producing soda ash at its Green River plant, the company also produces sodium sesquicarbonate
, sodium bicarbonate, sodium phosphates, sodium cyanide, and caustic soda products at this location.
Downstream products include sodium bicarbonate, sodium sesquicarbonate
and sodium hydroxide.
Flue-gas markets have been considered to hold growth potential for sodium bicarbonate, made from soda ash, or for related materials such as sodium sesquicarbonate
However, in the last decade the feed industry has moved toward the use of sodium sesquicarbonate
(trona) as a buffering product.
Cyclicality, especially compared with most commodity chemicals companies, is mitigated by the fact that the majority of end-users are in stable and predictable industries such as detergents, as well as by BM's growing presence in other products (such as sodium bicarbonate, calcium chloride liquor, branded sodium sesquicarbonate
, sodium silicate, and soda crystals), and, to a lesser extent, by the timing differences between the various product and regional cycles (strengthened by the group's increasing presence in Africa and Asia).
