2 NaCl + CaCO3 = Na2CO3 + CaCl2
NaCl & H2O
NaCl (aq) + NH3 + CO2 + H2O =
NaHCO3 (s) + NH4Cl (aq)
CaCO3 = CaO + CO2
Ca(OH)2 + 2NH4Cl =
CaCl2 + 2H20 + 2NH3
CaO + H20 = Ca(OH)2
Major Raw materials used for manufacture of Soda Ash is Salt, Limestone and Fuel.
Salt Manufacturing is a process where sweet water is separated from sea water
