September 19, 2008

Solvay Chemicals, Inc. has increased the list and off-list prices for Animal Feed Grade, Industrial Grade, and USP Grades of BICAR™ Sodium Bicarbonate by $60 per ton.

“This price increase is required to offset rapidly increasing manufacturing, transportation and raw material costs that have become a permanent part of our cost structure” states David Calvo, BICAR Sodium Bicarbonate Business Manager.

Solvay Chemicals, Inc. services the North American sodium bicarbonate market from its Parachute, CO facility. The plant is ISO 22000 certified.
