The Soda segment is an area with the largest share in the Group’s financial performance. In 2016, it accounted for 91% of Adj. EBITDA (adjusted by one-off events). The CIECH Group is focused on utilising its business potential and key competitive advantages which result from, among other aspects, the Group’s strong position on prospective markets and relations with customers, increase in production capacity and optimal distribution of production plants.  

The CIECH Group develops the portfolio of high quality soda-based products – used in the everyday life of people all over the world and in many branches of industry.

The production of soda in the CIECH Group is the responsibility of the following three companies: CIECH Soda Polska S.A. (plants in Janikowo and Inowrocław), CIECH Soda Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG (Stassfurt) and CIECH Soda Romania S.A. (Ramnicu Valcea).


Soda ash is produced in all plants and sodium bicarbonate – in Inowrocław and Stassfurt.

The soda segment is intensely developed by the Group. In 2015 and 2016, a key project, Soda +200, was completed. It consisted in increasing the production capacity of the soda plant in Inowrocław by 200 thousand tonnes per year (ended in the first quarter of 2016).

Further development of activities in the soda segment will take place mainly through continuation of optimization activities with regard to production capacity, as well as the growth of product quality and concentration on more processed products.

At the same time, the Group will improve the quality of service of its current clients and conduct intensive activities to attract new customers.
