The Ancient Alkali Production Technology and the Modern Improvement: A Review

J.O. Babayemi, G.O. Adewuyi, K.T. Dauda and A.A.A. Kayode

Local production of ash-derived alkali was assessed in this review. Detailed information on local production of ash-derived alkali is rare in literature. Hence, the technologies, materials, probable criteria for selection of materials, processes, use, limitations, problems and areas needing further research in the local production of alkali were assessed. Visitation was made to some traditional alkali-producing factories as well as interaction with other local alkali producer. The traditional technology was found very interesting, while the corresponding laboratory set-up showed an improvement over the traditional one. Local production of potash-an impure form of ash-derived alkali, was observed to be a cheap alternative source of this much needed chemical used in the production of soap and other alkali-based products.
