Neutralac® Q (quicklime, CaO) is a solid reagent resulting from the calcination of limestone in a kiln at 900°C or higher. Neutralc® Q can be used directly as a ready to use powder or can be slaked and diluted into a milk of lime in a specific application.
In wastewater treatment, quicklime is used to adjust and maintain pH values, neutralize acidic effluents, precipitate heavy metals, sulphates, phosphates and other ions as well as help coagulate/flocculate organics.
In sludge and solid waste treatment, quicklime is used to stabilize and hygienize, segregate heavy metals and other ions, improve dry matter and structure as well as add agronomic value.
