Lime (and dolomitic lime) is a very
old product that today is manufactured with the advances
of a more and more elaborated technique. Lime is characterized
by its polyvalence, i.e. the possibility to be used
in very diverse applications. From the commercial point
of view, this polyvalence means avoiding the tyranny
of commercialization in only one or two economy sectors.
