Lime products have many uses in, steel manufacture, chemical and food industries, industrial processes, building materials, environmental protection, and agriculture.Lime – a time-tested chemical — Science Learning Hub,Lime manufacture. From the earliest of times, lime has been made by heating limestone to high temperatures. Production methods have evolved from heating limestone in open fires, to the use of brick lime kilns at the start of the 17th century, to today’s horizontal rotating kilns several metres in diameter and up to 100 metres in length.Caveman to Chemist Projects: Lime and Lye,U.S. Production of lime was 15 billion kg in 1989 making it the 6th most-produced chemical in the U.S. One problem with lime, however, is that it is not very soluble in water. When lime and soda ash combine in a classic metathesis reaction, they produce lye, or sodium hydroxide.
