Carmeuse offers a variety of lime-based products, including high calcium quicklime and hydrated lime, advanced lime handling equipment, and service solutions to address the many challenges faced by Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facilities.


What is Waste-to-Energy?

Waste-to-Energy refers to the process of converting non-recyclable waste into usable energy sources – including fuel, heat, or electricity – through combustion or other means. By providing alternative fuel/energy sources, Waste-to-Energy treatments can lower greenhouse gas emissions by offsetting the need for traditional fossil fuels. Waste-to-Energy processes can also reduce methane gas generation by reducing the volume of municipal solid waste (MSW) destined for landfills.

While energy recovery is important for sustainable energy initiatives, Waste-to-Energy treatments that involve incinerators must be closely regulated to control air emissions. Flue gases from waste incineration require cleaning to reduce the risk of acid gases, heavy metals, and particulate pollution from being released into the atmosphere.

Lime Slaking Systems & Upgrades

Over time, equipment at Waste-to-Energy facilities may need updated or replaced due to normal wear and tear or for the integration of new technologies. Carmeuse supplies advanced equipment solutions for lime storage, handling, and slaking through our wholly owned subsidiary, Storage & Transfer Technologies (STT).

Our expert engineers can design the right solution to keep your operation running smoothly, from new lime handling systems and slakers, to retrofits and upgrades for your existing equipment. For additional information related to our lime handling expertise, visit the STT website.
