Limestone and dolomite form the basis for a wide range of products with various properties and uses.
The fact is a lot of what we take for granted simply wouldn’t work without calcium carbonate, also known as limestone. Limestone stabilises acidified ground and watercourses. Limestone products are essential to key processes in the mining and metals industries. Calcium carbonate is an additive that provides important properties for paper, paint and plastics. And as a pillar of the construction industry, limestone is needed for concrete and cement. Agriculture also needs calcium carbonate products, and limestone is also important for stabilising ground for roads and railways. And lots more besides.
