The catalog of Industrial Process Profiles for Environmental Use was developed as an aid in defining the environmental impacts of industrial activity in the United States. Entries for each industry are in consistent format and form separate chapters of the study. The lime industry comprises operations which mine dolomite on limestone deposits or dredge oyster shells and process these carbonate materials into lump, crushed or pulverized calcined products. The chief products in this category are quicklime, slaked or hydrated lime, dolime, and hydrated dolime. One chemical tree, one process flow sheet and six process descriptions have been prepared to characterize the industry. Within each process description available data have been presented on input materials, operating parameters, utility requirements and waste streams. Data related to the subject matter, including company, product and raw material data, are included as appendices.
