Our commitment to quality begins with the sourcing of limestone from our carefully cultivated deposits, ensuring adherence to the strictest environmental standards. With an abundance of reserves and minerals boasting exceptional purity, Leone La Ferla Spa stands at the forefront of lime production, poised for a future of endless possibilities.

At the heart of our offerings lies lime, a timeless natural material with a rich history dating back over 4,000 years. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology and meticulous production techniques, we transform limestone into quicklime through controlled decarbonation processes. Additionally, our production capabilities extend to hydrated lime, achieved through precise hydration methods.

Lime carbonates

Calcium carbonates, available in a wide range of particle sizes from a few microns to 45 millimeters, are successfully employed in road subgrades and chemical industries.

This diversification in particle size offers flexibility in choosing the most suitable material for specific needs and applications. Thanks to their presence in various size ranges, calcium carbonates meet a variety of requirements, effectively contributing to both infrastructural projects and chemical industrial processes.
