Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.03.14 PMCarmeuse Lime & Stone is set to construct two 440-ton vertical lime kilns at its plant in Frederick County, W. Va.

According to a press release, these vertical kilns will be more fuel efficient and environmentally beneficial than the horizontal kilns used at most plants around the nation.

“We are an environmentally conscious company,” says James Bottom, Area Operations Manager for the Carmeuse limestone quarries at Strasburg, Middletown and Frederick County, Va. “Many of the products produced by Carmeuse benefit the environment… Lime and limestone reduce the amount of sulfur dioxide that is emitted into the atmosphere, which reduces acid rain.”

With their new kilns, Carmeuse hopes to tap into potential markets, such as steel, water treatment and construction, while meeting the lime demands in the Eastern United States.
