Potassium Carbonate Production Cost Report
 

Potassium carbonate is an inorganic chemical compound that is extensively used in fire extinguishers and to make soap, glass, household cleaners, and soften water. It is mainly used as a drying agent or as a source of potassium in pharmaceutical laboratories. The wide range of products that can be made using potassium carbonate include bulbs, dye, ink, sodium metasilicate, plating, polyester powder, TV tubes, optical glass, potash soap, drugs, photography items, leather, crystal, electrode tube, printing items, and ceramic building materials. It is used in the production of cocoa powder to balance the pH and enhance aroma and as a buffering agent in wine production.

The market for potassium carbonate is predominantly driven by its extensive use in the production of soap, glass, and various household cleaners, which increases its demand in the glass, detergent, and household cleaning industries. It also finds application in the production of cocoa powder to balance the pH and enhance aroma and as a buffering agent in wine production, which further enhances its demand in the food & beverages industry. Moreover, it is also employed as a drying agent or as a source of potassium in pharmaceutical laboratories and in fire extinguishers, which adds value to this commodity in chemical, pharmaceutical, and fire safety industries. Additionally, industrial potassium carbonate procurement is governed by various factors, including the availability and production cost of its feedstock (including potassium hydroxide and carbon dioxide), the market prices of potassium carbonate, its distribution (covering transportation and trading activities), logistics, and health & safety concerns, etc.

Raw Material for Potassium Carbonate Production

According to the Potassium Carbonate manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Potassium Carbonate production include Potassium Hydroxide-Carbon Dioxide.

Manufacturing Process of Potassium Carbonate

The extensive Potassium Carbonate production cost report consists of this major industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production via Potassium Chloride: The process begins with the electrolysis of aqueous potassium chloride to produce potassium hydroxide, chlorine, and hydrogen. Potassium hydroxide is further reacted with carbon dioxide to give potassium carbonate as the final product.

Potassium Carbonate (K2CO3) is a potassium salt which is carbonic acid's dipotassium salt. It is an inorganic compound, hygroscopic, and is a deliquescent powder. It functions as a fertilizer, a catalyst, and a flame retardant. it is a potassium salt as well as a carbonate salt.

It's made as the by-product of potassium hydroxide's absorbent reaction with carbon dioxide and is a primary component of potash. It is a white salt that is odourless and alkaline in taste. It is soluble in water and insoluble in ethanol, acetone, and alcohol, making a strong alkaline solution. It has a pH of 11.6, has a molar mass of 138.205 g/mol, and a density of 2.43 g/cm3. Its melting point is 891 °C and has a thickness of 2.43 g mL-1. It dissolves at 891 ºC.
