Sodium bicarbonate is a secondary product of Soda Ash, derived from natural deposits or man-made.
The natural deposits are called Trona and are reported to be ancient mineral deposits in the Green River, Wyoming region 450km below the surface that was once covered by an enormous lake. As the lake evaporated it left behind a deposit of Trona between sandstone and shale said to be so large it could provide the world for thousands years.
The Trona Ore is brought to the surface, refined into slurry containing both Soda Ash and Sodium Bicarbonate. The crystals and liquid are separated in a centrifuge. The crystals are then dissolved in a bicarbonate solution and then filtered to remove any non-soluble material. Purified carbon dioxide is fed into the filtered solution with the resulting reaction forming Sodium Bicarbonate. The Sodium Bicarbonate is held in holding bins where it cures, then packaged and shipped.
There you have it, a simple production from nature to package !
