Calcium oxide and the specific products derived from it are obtained by the process of calcination of calcium carbonate at high temperature.
CaCO3 + Heat → CaO + CO2
Calcium oxide is an alkaline product that allows the regulation of many industrial processes. Its principal properties depend on its chemical composition and the thermal treatment that the mineral has been subjected to, which determine its degree of reactivity.
Calcinor is betting on the most energy efficient calcination systems on the market. Through grinding processes and additional classifications Calcinor is able to offer the most suitable granulometric grade for any application as well as the optimum shipping format for every customer (sacks, large bag, bulk).
Special calcium oxide based products have been developed in the R+D department:

“Chokáa” (“lime” in Swahili) project came about in 2013, led by the engineer Pablo Moñino whose objective was to produce lime on a small scale so it could be used to create an alternative binding material for construction and for dams that need repairing.
