Sodium Sulphate falls within a class of inorganic salts, with the formula Na2SO4. In its solid anhydrous form the substance appears in nature as a thenardite (salt cake) dry evaporite deposits; though a hydrous Sodium Sulphate is extracted from the mineral mirabilite (otherwise termed Glauber's salt) in lake beds. Sulfuric acid’s sodium salt is also a byproduct from a heap of industrial processes. It is mainly utilized in the fields of detergents, glass (a refining and descumming agent), textiles (as a dye fixative), and kraft pulping.
The world’s annual Sodium Sulphate production totals close to 17 million tons, with China comprising over 70 percent share. Asia answers for somewhat 32 percent of the overall exports, with China being the core contributor. Some of the globe’s major Sodium Sulphate miners are Searles Valley Minerals, Airborne Industrial Minerals, Quimica Del Rey, FMC Foret, Sulquisa, and Chengdu Sanlian Tianquan Chemical. Top Sodium Sulfate byproduct makers include, among others, Elementis Chromium, Addiseo, Lenzing AG, and Shikoku Chemicals.
