Our La Madeleine plant continues to manufacture sodium bicarbonate and sodium carbonate to produce the required quantities to face the COVID-19 crisis.

Sodium bicarbonate is a key excipient for hemodialysis treatment. 600 to 900 g of sodium bicarbonate are necessary per dialysis session. Pharmaceutical grades of sodium bicarbonate and sodium carbonate are essential for the production of effervescent tablets (paracetamol, aspirin). They are also used in several hygiene products like toothpaste or detergent. Sodium bicarbonate is also used for Food market as a leavening agent for bakery (cakes, biscuits,…). Today our whole staff is mobilized to deliver our customers and secure the manufacturing of their products.
