The Lime Cycle
Also known as the calcium cycle

Do you know

Lime, as it cures, absorbs CO2 from the air, thereby aiding in carbon capture as part of the natural "lime cycle."
 

Carbonation:

  • Process: Slaked lime (calcium hydroxide, Ca(OH)₂) reacts with carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the air.

  • Chemical Reaction:

    Ca(OH)2+CO2→CaCO3+H2OCa(OH)2​+CO2​→CaCO3​+H2​O

  • Result: Limestone (calcium carbonate, CaCO₃) and water (H₂O).
     

During carbonation, CO₂ is absorbed from the atmosphere to form calcium carbonate, acting as a carbon sink. These components can be used in paint and bio-construction.

Our Activities.

We're dedicated to enriching experiences for creatives and artists. Explore our past projects and get involved—we'd love to hear from you!
