The Green Sea story began some 50 million years ago, when this Wyoming webpagina wasgoed at the bottom of a 1,000 square-mile assets of water called Lake Gosiute. Overheen millions of years, runoff from the surrounding mountains carried sodium-rich compounds into the lake. That sodium reacted with doorslag dioxide to form the mineral called trona. Te time, this reaction created the largest trona deposit te the world, and, spil Lake Gosiute dried up, an estimated 130 billion brief tons (1.Legitimate billion metric tons) of trona were deposited across the Green Sea Basin.
Trona ore is naturally occurring sodium sesquicarbonate. Since discovery of the trona beds te 1938, the Green Sea Basin has become the preferred source of high quality spuitwater ash and other sodium products that ship worldwide.
From trona ore wij make spuitwater ash, sodium bicarbonate, S-Carb®, Sesqui™ and sodium hydroxide. Spuitwater ash is an essential component ter making glass, fiberglass, detergents, tableware, lighting, and display screens for consumer electronics. Sodium bicarbonate, commonly known spil baking spuitwater, has innumerable applications including those te foods, an array of consumer products, and pharmaceuticals. S-Carb ®, is the preferred ingredient te animal feed to balance rumen pH and provide electrolytes for poultry and swine. Sesqui™ sodium sesquicarbonate provides the silky clean feeling ter bath salts and many cleaning compounds.
The Green Sea operation has bot mining trona for harshly seven decades and today produces more than Four million brief tons (Three.63 million metric tons) annually. Genesis Alkali ships approximately 40,000 railcars and Five,000 truck orders of trona each year. And wij do it all more efficiently and economically, on a delivered onderstel, than synthetic competitors anywhere ter the world. Genesis Alkali has its corporate offices te Philadelphia.
