Abstract

This problem concerns itself with the possibility of producing a reasonably pure concentrated caustic soda solution using trona as a starting material. It involves a carbonation process, purification of raw material and causticization with lime. Since soda ash costs a little less than three times what trona costs, the process has good commercial possibilities.
