The Lime Kiln Dust Market provides an overview of the key players, their market shares, sizes, opportunities, and projections through 2025.

As one of the most adaptable industrial materials, lime is primarily used to remove impurities in the steel manufacturing industry. Fine-grained dust is produced as a by-product when limestone is drilled to make lime in a rotary kiln. Lime kiln dust market is an essential by product of this process. When the rotary kiln’s filter medium is full, the lime kiln dust is removed.

Due to its high calcium content and composition (lime and limestone), lime kiln dust is ideal for a variety of purposes including soil stabilization, industrial waste stabilization, soil drying or conditioning, and agricultural applications. Asia Pacific countries dominate in lime kiln dust production.

The unique chemical properties of limestone, lime, silicates and other inert minerals in lime kiln dust, a very fine material, make it particularly ideal for agricultural use. Lime kiln dust can be successfully used in the soil lime process depending on the concentration of calcium carbonate derived from the lime material. Soil improvement, industrial waste stabilization and agricultural uses are the main uses of lime kiln dust. The process of distributing lime kiln dust to the soil using a lime transfer tank or slurry mixer is a major component of soil stabilization.

Another important use of lime kiln dust is soil drying, where the dust absorbs moisture and gives off heat, acting as a medium to dry soil on wet ground. Because of this, lime kiln dust is very important for construction sites during the rainy season.

The major companies which produce lime kiln dust are Maerz Ofenbau AG (Switzerland)

  • Graymont (North America)
    • Greer lime company
  • Xinjiang Zhongtai Chemical are few amongst others.

Lime kiln dust is suitable for stabilizing industrial waste because it also serves as an important desiccant and is used to treat heavy metal contamination. However, this procedure is expensive because it requires a special industrial blender. As a mineral filler, lime kiln dust is also utilized to some extent in stone matrix asphalt, a premium grade of asphalt pavement.

However, depending on the expected output quality, the percentage content of calcium will affect how it is used. The main purpose of lime kiln dust in agriculture is to increase the calcium content of the soil.

Lime kiln dust is an important by-product of the use of lime in the steel industry. China and India are the two largest markets for lime kiln dust, followed by Europe and the United States. Expansion of manufacturing facilities in China, Japan and India are major contributors to the by-product of lime kiln dust.
