  • Calcium oxide (CaO), commonly known as burnt lime, lime or quicklime, is a widely used chemical compound. It is a white, caustic and alkaline crystalline solid. As a commercial product lime often also contains magnesium oxide, silicon oxide and smaller amounts of aluminium oxide and iron oxide.
  • Calcium oxide is a crystalline solid. Its crystal structure is Isometric with space group Fm3m. It is generally unstable when 553 moisture is present and exhibits a large exothermic reaction with water to form aqueous Ca(OH)2.
  •  Calcium oxide is produced by heating calcium carbonate to 2000 deg F where carbon dioxide disassociates as a gas from the calcium carbonate.
  • CaO is representative of group II oxides (MgO, SrO, etc). It can be prepared by intense roasting of the corresponding carbonate or hydroxide. The formation is reversible in the presence of CO2 or H2O, respectively.
  • Lime processes mainly contains the following basic steps: Winning of limestone , Limestone storage and preparation , Fuels storage and preparation , Calcination of limestone , Quicklime processing , Quicklime hydration and slaking , Storage, handling and transport .
  • More than 90% of the lime (burned or hydrated) produced in the United States is used for basic or industrial chemistry. 70 The primary use is for steel manufacture (30%), metallurgy, air pollution control and water and sewage wastewater 71 treatment (24%), cement and mortar, chemical manufacture, manufacture of glass and paper, diluents and carriers of 72 pesticides such as lime-sulfur and Bordeaux mixture, and bleach production and other chemical manufacture.
  • Lime typically sells for A$100 to A$120 per tonne implying a total value of production of $80m. Import competition largely decides the price of lime.
  • The lime industry is a captive industry to Western Australia. Lime producers are competitive through ready access to limestone, cheap energy, economies of scale and in particular by international freight that acts as a barrier to trade in both directions for this low value product. Though import competition serves mainly to determine local prices, it is possible if not probable, that the quality of lime produced in Western Australia will increase with increasing demand from resource companies especially those close to north western ports where import competition is inevitably greatest and with the future supply of higher grade lime from Swan Portland Cement.
  • Like other calcium compounds, calcium oxide is used for many construction purposes, as in the manufacture of bricks, mortar, plaster, and stucco.
  • Among the many other applications of calcium oxide are its uses in the production of pulp and paper, in the removal of hair from animal hides, in clarifying cane and beet sugar, in poultry feeds, and as a drilling fluid.
  • Calcium oxide is also used in dehairing hides, deodorising vegetable oils, in water and sewage treatment, in flue gas purification, and in the beet sugar processing industry. Finally, it is used in food for pH-control, and as a texturising, firming, and anticaking agent
