Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

This industry produces a range of lime- and gypsum-based plaster products. Official data on production and sales tends to be distorted because most players are vertically integrated.

Lime is produced in several forms, depending on the quality of raw material inputs and ultimate downstream application. The industry's lime products include quicklime, hydrated lime and slaked lime. Lime can be used in environmental applications like flue gas desulphurisation (FGD). The FGD process removes acidic gases like sulphur dioxides and hydrogen chloride from the exhaust gases emitted by power stations and other large-scale industrial plants. Lime can also be used to treat sludges, animal waste, waste water, drinking water and hazardous waste.
