Mississippi Lime is a leading supplier of quicklime for on-site PCC plants in adjacent to paper mills. The satellite PCC operations had experienced rapid growth in the 1990’s when the paper industry saw successful conversion in wet end from acid papermaking to alkaline technology. Our quicklime products meet high quality standard in lime reactivity, brightness and CO2 content.
Mississippi Lime also provides quicklime as a re-causticizing agent in pulping plant, when lime kilns in paper mills are down due to maintenance or short of supply. In a kraft pulping process, the waste sodium carbonate in the green liquor has to be recovered by reacting with quicklime to regenerate the original white liquor of caustic soda (NaOH).
Mississippi Lime’s Standard Quicklime and Standard Hydrated Lime are widely used in both Pulp and PCC manufacturing applications.
