    lime operations by reducing the use of fossil fuel and helping to utilise waste as a resource Opportunities for widespread use of waste derived fuels in the lime industry are limited by the requirement from many customers for high purity lime products especially from the pharmaceutical and drinking water purification sectors Clearly the very cleanest fuels must be used to drive the calcination process for these markets to ensure that there is no contamination in the final product However waste derived fuels have been used successfully by the UK lime industry to produce other lime products since the 1990 s and have demonstrated clear environmental benefits The use of waste derived fuels is subject to strict regulatory controls and the BLA Code of Practice has been developed by the BLA with its Members to set out the minimum standards to which members will adhere The BLA commitment to up front stakeholder consultation prior to making a formal application to the Environment Agency goes over and above regulatory obligations and seeks to involve the local community and interested parties at an earlier stage in the process Download the BLA Code of Practice for the use of waste derived fuels in lime

    of these specifications are known as ecopoints and are based on the Life Cycle Assessment using Environmental Profiles methodology The Environmental profiles allow designers to demand reliable and comparable environmental information about competing building materials allowing suppliers to present reliable information regarding their products The profile takes into account all aspects of assessing the environmental effects of building materials over their entire life cycle including their extraction processing use and maintenance and their eventual disposal The ecopoints can be calculated and tallied depending on these specifications and then attributed to each material the lower the score the more environmentally friendly the product Manufacturers can now view their certified Environmental Profiles which subsequently allow their products to be compared to the generic profiles available at www bre co uk envprofiles In regards to the lime industry BRE have produced the following ecopoint scores for Ground quicklime Lump quicklime and Hydrated quicklime products Ground 2005 Lump 2005 Hydrated 2005 1 6 1 6 1 3 Overall lime products are becoming more environmentally friendly as their ecopoint values decrease over time This is a trend the lime industry and BLA will strive to maintain and improve in the future You are in Issues

    dietary supplements antacids and other well known medicines Plastics Quicklime reacts with any free water present to form hydrated lime This removes water from the system and can be useful when dealing with products that are heated during the manufacturing process such as plastic When making plastic if any potential water is not removed then steam bubbles may occur in the finished product which can affect its strength and appearance Quicklime is therefore often used in PVC and rubber manufacturing processes PVC itself is rated as one of the most valuable products in the chemical industry and throughout the world over 50 of PVC manufactured is used for construction As a building material PVC is cheap durable cost effective and easy to assemble The uses of rubber range from household to industrial products including the eraser on the end of your pencil to the tyres on your car Paper Lime can be used to make fillers and coating products which are used within the paper industry Hydrated lime is used in the sulphate process during the manufacture of paper and pulp Glass Although limestone is generally more cost effective in the production of glass dolomitic and high calcium lime in finely ground forms can also be used under specific circumstances Burnt lime often provides greater transparency to the glass than limestone due to its lower content of organic matter The use of lime in the process also reduces the requirement for expensive decolouriser additives Iron and steel In many countries lime is used more for iron and steel making than for construction and building Most of the lime used is for removing impurities in the basic oxygen steelmaking BOS process The BOS process is now used for 70 of the worlds steel production with the remainder being in electric arc
