Latest trends and drivers in the Lime market in Europe

  • Market engine:
    • Increased focus on wastewater recycling:

Hydrated lime is widely used in industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants, including as a coagulant and flocculant. Lime has important applications in the treatment and recycling of wastewater. Rapid population growth and the depletion of natural freshwater resources in recent years have led to a shortage of clean drinking water for domestic and industrial use. Therefore, the countries of Western Europe have implemented regulations on the treatment and recycling of wastewater in industries.

  • Market trend:
    • Increased focus on energy efficiency:

In recent years, the countries of Western Europe have seen an increase in focus on environmentally friendly production and minimizing the industrial carbon footprint. Lime production is traditionally a carbon-intensive process. However, developed countries such as Germany and the UK are striving to become low carbon economies. Therefore, several lime production plants in these countries are being modernized to ensure energy efficiency and minimize fuel emissions. With the adoption of modern technologies in machinery to optimize processes such as crushing and cooling of limestone, lime kilns are expected to become highly energy efficient over the forecast period.
