To protect the environment is one of our principles and it is for this reason that the products we manufacture and supply from Microlime help to protect the environment.
Our products participate in the treatment of water, sludge, and industrial gases. The objective of these treatments is to preserve natural resources and to minimise the footprint generated by industrial activities.
Calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide are reactives with a high degree of efficiency at the time of locking on to contaminating substances and even permit the elimination of microcontaminants.
The application of lime in the treatment of water vary a great deal. From the processing of drinking water to the purification of industrial and urban waste. Lime if the principle raw material used in drinking water and industrial waste-water treatment due to its virus and bacterial disinfectant properties.
Lime and its derivates act as clarifiers, coagulants, neutralisers, and contaminant precipitators.
During the treatment of water and gases sludge is generated. This mud or sludge develops bacteria and generates bad odours due to their organic charge.
Lime helps to coagulate the solids and diminish the water content, improves the friability of the sludge, and cleans it elevating its pH and destroying bacteria and microorganisms.
Lime, both in the form of oxide as well as hydroxide, depending on the process, is the cheapest way of removing sulphur. It is essential for reducing emission values as it purifies combustion gases. Acid compounds such as the different compounds of sulphur, chlorine and fluorine can be eliminated from combustion gases.
Lime products are mainly used for removing sulphur from power plants, waste incineration plants, and industrial plants.
Lime reduces the solubility of heavy metals contained in the leached soils from waste tips, attaining an inert solid.
The concerns related to contamination of the soil have to do mainly with the potential risks for health, both by direct contact or indirect contamination of water supplies.
Cleaning environmental contamination includes several techniques that go from simple biological processes to the most advanced engineering technology. Elimination processes can be based on the types of contaminant and their location.
