Lime Market: Key Players

  • Graymont announced plans to expand its Victoria, Australia, operations to deliver higher lime volumes with low emissions. The company confirmed that it is proceeding with planning and detailed engineering for a significant expansion and diversification of its operations in southeastern Australia, to meet the increased lime demand in the Victoria region and other burgeoning markets in eastern Australia.
  • Mississippi Lime Company (MLC), an HBM Holdings company headquartered in St. Louis, acquired Singleton Birch, the leading independent supplier of lime products in the U.K. The acquisition is part of MLC’s strategy to drive growth, innovation, and sustainability through geographic expansion and new products and technologies that proactively address customers’ changing needs.

Limestone is primarily used to manufacture lime, where it is heated to form calcium oxide and carbon dioxide from calcium carbonate. Carbon Dioxide produced in the process is a greenhouse gas leading to numerous calamities and global warming that results in drastic consequences, as, this production process is highly energy-intensive, which increases the overall carbon footprint of the industry.

Hydrated products can change the acidity of industrial and mining wastewater and remove toxins such as phosphorus and nitrogen where its usage in water treatment has gained tremendous traction. Quicklime is utilized to treat chimney gas from industries, power plants, and waste incinerators due to which it absorbs and neutralizes SOx emissions and thus, prevents the occurrence of acid rains. Such factors where the product demand is projected to be driven by stringent environmental conservation obligations.
