Brief Description

Description :

A process for the utilization of kimberlite waste for the preparation of sodium silicate on ~ 50 kg/batch has been developed. Processes for the preparation of detergent grade zeolite-A (10 kg/batch) and precipitated silica (5 kg/batch) have been developed using the sodium silicate prepared from Kimberlite waste.
