Key Considerations

Carmeuse Brasil’s quicklime has a high purity content and is essential for regenerating caustic soda, besides serving as a bleaching agent and treating residual water from pulp production. Quicklime also helps pulp manufacturers dissolve non-cellulose elements from wood. It also plays a fundamental role in the production of PCC, a mineral additive that comes from the calcination and precipitation of quicklime, a product with a high brightness index and low density.
