Sodium silicate is presently manufactured in number of processes. Our experimental work Is preparation of sodium silicate from rice husk. Rice husk is available enormously from the modern rice mills. Hence, Our work involves the utilization of waste material into a valuable product, which is presented as preparation of sodium silicate from rice husk waste. This process found to be most economical and viable one. This process involves mainly alkali treatment.
