  • Lime is a high-bulk, comparatively low-cost commodity; however, it may be sold within a wide radius depending on transportation costs and supply and demand. High-calcium quicklime is commercially available in six forms: lump, crushed, pebble, ground, pulverized, and as briquettes or pellets

  • Calcining takes place mainly in vertical (shaft-type) or rotary-type kilns, the latter technology being most common in North America.
  • Underground mining,  is an important and an increasingly common method of limestone production in the state.
  • Industrial markets for lime mainly include the pulp and paper industry, the mining industry, chemicals manufacturing, and environmental control.
  • The major producers were China, which accounted for 17%, followed by the United States at 16% and Germany and Japan each with about 6.5%. Other countries, mainly the former Soviet Union, accounted for about 33%.
  • High-calcium quicklime is commercially available in six forms: lump, crushed, pebble, ground, pulverized, and as briquettes or pellets. Slaked lime is produced from mixing quicklime and water and may be purchased as a putty, dry powder or slurry. Hydrated lime is produced from slaked lime after drying and regrinding.
  • Lime imports have always been a very small fraction of total U.S. lime use. Lime exports have likewise always been a very small percentage of total U.S. lime production.
  • World production of lime was recorded from the MYB and the MR. World production statistics were not available from 190062. All data for China are absent prior to 1983, and subsequent inclusion of Chinese lime data are conservative estimates of the USGS Commodity (Lime) Specialist.

  • Limestone is an important raw material and it is often said to be the 
    world's versatile mineral. It has a wide variety of applications, but its 
    primary use in the construction industry where it is the principal source of chrushed rock aggregate in the UK.

  • Total demand for Limestone and chalk for industrial and agricultural use 
    was 6.9 million tonnes and 2.1 million tonnes respectively in 2004. In 
    addition, net imports of crushed and powdered marble, were about 113000 
    tonnes in 2004.

  • Although limestones are widely distributed in the UK, many are 
    unsuitable for industrial use because of their chemical and/or physical 
    properties. The only important resources of industrial limestone in the UK are the Carboniferous limestone and Cretaceous-age Chalk.

  • The price of a limestone product is largely governed by the cost of extraction, processing and transportation. The high capital costs of quarrying, due to the high investment in machinery to work and process the stone, has led to the development of large quarries that can produce high tonnages over long periods of time.
