Calcined soda, namely sodium carbonate, is an important basic chemical raw material and also a basic raw material for such industries as building materials, metallurgy, and chemical. In the recent years, the rapid expansion of sodium carbonate downstream sectors has made China in short supply of sodium carbonate. Since July, 2007, China has had a rise of nearly 30% in its export price of sodium carbonate; however, its annual export volume has had a negative growth trend.
