Use of Resources

Efficient and appropriate sourcing of resources is at the core of successful industry and the lime sector is focussed on these aspects for the sustainable continuation of their businesses as much as any other.  The core resource is the stone from which all the products originate, and this is continually assessed for its qualities and to minimise waste, while producing products that meet with the requirements of the customers. The manufacturing also requires water, and this can be licenced for abstraction from aquifers within the footprint of the quarry and requiring no treatment or conditioning prior to its use.  Recycling of process water for washing of the quarried stone is a normal part of the operations of the manufacturers.
