Lime is a versatile material with various applications, serving as a raw material for the formulation of products such as mortars for construction and chemical compounds.

Building industry

Lime, employed since antiquity, continues to play a key role in modern construction. Products such as calcium hydroxide, lime putty, and wet mortars are essential for durable constructions, ensuring quality and strength.

Steel industry

Millions of tons of pig iron and steel are produced in Italy every year, and lime is indispensable for these processes. It is used in the production of agglomerated iron ore and in the smelting and refining of steel.

Transport infrastructure

The construction of roads, railways, and other infrastructure requires huge quantities of aggregates. Lime offers the possibility of reclaiming soils considered unsuitable, transforming them into materials suitable for road subgrades and superstructures.


Lime is the ideal corrective for overly acidic soils. Through the practice of “liming”, it neutralizes acidity, creating optimal conditions for crop growth and nutrition.


Lime stands out as a natural and sustainable material. With advanced technologies, it acts as a natural reagent in wastewater treatment, sanitization of biological sludges, and purification of emissions.

Verified and reliable industrial processes

To guarantee high standards across people, products and environmental sustainability the Company’s Management has implemented and streamlined simple but effective processes, as follows: – people constant training and motivation; – technologically cutting-edge systems; – lab analysis and careful control of raw materials; – lab analysis and continuous control of finished products; – innovative production cycles, organized in a way to always meet customers’ requests; – timely and punctual products’ deliveries to customers made via selected and reliable carriers;
