Another European soda ash plant is closing. Tata Chemicals has proposed closing its soda ash and calcium chloride plants in Winnington, En­gland, while expanding its sodium bicarbonate plant at the site. Its soda ash and bicarbonate plants in Lostock, En­gland, will remain open. The company says 220 employees will be affected by the move, which it blames on high energy prices. In June, Solvay announced it will close a soda ash plant in Portugal and reduce output in Italy.
