Influence of global crude salt supply on soda ash (November 2011)
Invitation to a presentation on 6th December 2011 at 09:15 by Vladimir M. Sedivy at the International Soda Ash Summit 2011, oganised by CBI Events, Shanghai CBI Development Co. at the Hilton Guangzhou Tianhe Hotel, 215 Linhe Xi Heng Road, Guangzhou 510 500, China.
Recently, Salt Partners were flying over Australian solar saltfields. The salt stockpiles were depleted. The Asia Pacific chloralkali industry depends on solar salt from Australia and Mexico. About a half of the world 40 million t/y of synthetic soda ash is being produced in China. The Chinese soda ash industry has been growing at a rate of 13% per annum. Where is the additional salt for the Chinese soda ash production coming from and where will it come from in the future? From the sea? From the lakes? From vacuum plants? From abroad? How does the shortage of Australian salt effect the international trade? How do the salt prices react? How will the rising salt prices effect the Chinese soda ash production economy? Can other countries fill the gap?
