S. export markets.  “This capacity expansion is an important step in Solvay’s three-year action plan to reinforce its global leadership in soda ash by addressing different regional market dynamics.In line with the plan, announced last June, the Group is gradually expanding its U.S. production capacity by about 12 percent,” said Christophe Clemente, President of Solvay’s Soda Ash & Derivatives global business unit.
