CAWC, Inc. is the Philippines' pioneer and sole manufacturer of technical grade sodium tri-polyphosphates (STPP) and tetra-sodium pyrophosphates (TSPP) for the Philippine detergent industry.

  • In 1972, under its original corporate structure named Polyphosphates, Inc., (PPI) then a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chemical Industries of the Philippines Inc., it built the first polyphosphates plant . At the outset the Company produced only STPP and only for the use of the detergent industry as "builder" in their formulation i.e. " to prevent the redeposition on fabrics - of the soil from the wash water.

  • In 1984, PPI - by then a joint venture company with Albright and Wilson Ltd., of the United Kingdom with a 40% ownership in the Company, erected one of the first phosphoric acid plants in the Asean region. Its phosphoric acid plant was a vertical integration project. Now, it produces not only technical grade for CAWC's own requirements in the manufacture of STPP and TSPP - but food grade phosphoric acid for the food and beverage industries as well. It also manufactures carbon dioxide (CO2 ) - another product that it delivers to the beverage industry.

  • In 1994, it proceeded with the implementation of the long-contemplated CO2 plant. The CO2 plant was erected both as an environmental project and as a commercially viable venture. Its main contribution to the environment is it recovers the carbon dioxide gas - that ensues from the manufacturing process of STPP/TSPP when it involves the use of soda ash to recover. Now, this plant also contributes to the Company's bottom-line as it manufactures CO2 which is sold to the beverage industry.

  • In 2003, CIP bought the shares of its joint-venture partners and CAWC became 100% owned by CIP.
