Solvay’s latest investment in Germany is an archetypical instance of the varied and vast expanse of sodium bicarbonate market. The Belgium-based specialty chemicals firm has invested around EUR 6 million apparently, to expand its sodium bicarbonate production capacity in Rheinberg, Germany.

Touted as a rather strategic and well-thought out plan by the sodium bicarbonate industry player, this investment is targeted at providing Solvay’s customers with the SOLVAir SB 0/3. This solution, a ready-to-use product for lowering pollutant atmospheric emissions, is specifically designed to aid factories meet environmental regulations with lesser operational costs. While helping to purify air quality does not typically fall under the regular applications of sodium bicarbonate, Solvay’s commitment toward lowering carbon footprints sheds light on the increasing deployment of this product in the industrial sector.

An in-depth insight of sodium bicarbonate market trends in the agriculture sector

The usage of baking soda for myriad functionalities in agriculture, though acknowledged since long, however, has been commercialized only in recent years. One of the most pivotal reasons why the agricultural domain has essentially constituted the end-use segment of sodium bicarbonate industry is the globally rising population. With the number of denizens across the globe increasing at a breakneck pace, the demand for food has observed a remarkable ascent, leading to increasing crop cultivation.

In consequence, this demands the usage of sodium bicarbonate as an effective agent to treat insects in farmlands and more importantly, washing away pesticides from fruits and vegetables. A recent study demonstrated that since most pesticides such as thiabendazole and phosmet remain unstable at an alkaline pH, the application of baking soda conveniently breaks down the compounds and washes them away, thus enabling sodium bicarbonate market to benefit massively from the agrochemical sector.

The efficiency of baking soda to fight pests has been duly recognized by chemical companies, on the grounds of which innovative products are being developed across sodium bicarbonate industry, to eliminate pesticides and enhance agricultural farms. For instance, Solvay, the globally renowned sodium bicarbonate market player, recently launched the BiFor-SAFE, an effective formulation based on mineral salts and sodium bicarbonate that is 100% inorganic and can battle insects or cleanse farm buildings. A non-neurotoxic, non-toxic solution, this product, branded under PROCropTM, took the sodium bicarbonate industry by storm post its launch, and has been legally approved to be used in organic farming and for the prevention of insect development in grain silos.
