    Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, a naturally occurring crystalline compound. The main of baking soda is in Green River, Wyoming. Almost all baking soda made in the U.S. comes from there, and a quarter of the world’s supply too.

    The ore is removed using Trona room-and-pillar mining, it is then processed into soda ash. The ash is dissolved in water and bubbled with carbon dioxide, forming sodium-bicarbonate crystals. On environmental concern is that the wastewater is very salty, and when it is piped away to a holding pond, it can make the birds that visit said pond fall sick.
