Calcium hydroxide, obtained through a process which hydrates calcium oxide, is a polyvalent product with multiple properties, and can be used in different formats in industry, construction and the environment.
It is also an additive in feeds improving animal nutrition, and is used in animal-pens for its disinfecting power, lowering the number of pathogens and virus. In the sugar-industry it can be used to precipitate out impurities and to obtain purified sucrose. It also brings benefits in sludge treatment as it is an exceptional aid in the elimination of micro-organisms and bacteria which at the same time neutralizes bad smells. Its properties are especially useful for water treatment, because it acts as a clarifier, a coagulant, a neutralizer and for the precipitation of dissolved pollutants.
