SOLVAY - Trentini Americani

I luoghi che danno il titolo alle puntate di questa serie ripercorrono idealmente il viaggio che molti trentini intrapresero verso l'interno del continente nordamericano. Attraverso il racconto dei testimoni, si tracciano i contorni delle comunità di discendenti, il loro legame con il Trentino, la loro storia e il presente. A cura di Vincenzo Mancuso.

A friend of mine, Ed Pepin, who grew up in Solvay was driving from California to Syracuse. He told me that there is a Solvay Chemicals Company mine located in Wyoming that mines soda ash from naturally occurring deposits. These deposits are the reason soda ash production was moved from Solvay NY to Wyoming.

Solvay Chemicals, Inc. Green River, Wyoming is a major U.S. producer
of soda ash from trona, a naturally-occurring mineral used in glass
manufacturing. The site is a mining, refining and chemical manufacturing
facility. The primary raw material for the Green River facility is
sodium sesquicarbonate, which is commonly referred to as trona. The
trona is mined at the plant site from an ore bed located 1500 feet below
the surface. The facility made its first product, soda ash, in May of
1982. The soda ash plant has been expanded two times since then. Trona
products (beneficiated ore) were added in 1985. Then to further
diversify the product line, sodium sulfite was added in the early 90’s.
The most recent addition to the product line was sodium bicarbonate,
which began production in 2010.
