Used throughout Industry, sodium bicarbonate buffers, neutralizes, provides a source of CO2, and acts as a catalyst in multiple processes. In the oil and gas industry, sodium bicarbonate is used to chemically treat drilling mud when it becomes contaminated with calcium ions from cement or lime. Sodium bicarbonate reacts with calcium ions to produce an inert calcium precipitate that can be removed from the system.

Fire extinguishers use sodium bicarbonate to smother the flames. Dry chemical extinguishers are often a fine grade of sodium bicarbonate. The sodium bicarbonate decomposes in the high temperatures and releases carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide in turn reduces the oxygen supply available to the fire, eliminating it.
