Calcis Lienen GmbH & Co. KG was originally founded in 1952 to supply its own lime sandstone works. The high quality of the raw material and the permanent progress in beneficiation processes allowed the development of new markets. The construction materials industry aside, these now include road construction, agriculture, environmental protection and water supply and distribution. The pertinent products from Lienen include quicklime (calcium oxide), calcium hydroxide, natural lime (calcium carbonate) and mixed products of various qualities.
The Lienen site includes its own quarry, whose lime is quarried in blasting operations. None of our sites poses any environmental hazard. Our lime products do not include any "SVHC-Substances of Very High Concern" listed in the ECHA list.
Calcis Lienen GmbH also houses our sales HQ and coordinates the network of companies’ activities in the market.
Calcis Warstein GmbH & Co. KG was originally founded in 1932 as a producer of fertilising quicklime. The high quality of the raw material and the permanent progress in beneficiation processes allowed a gradual development of new markets. Agriculture aside, these now include construction materials, road construction, cosmetics, foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals, aluminium, paper, iron and steel, environmental protection and drinking water. Calcis products from Warstein include quicklime (calcium oxide), calcium hydroxide and mixed products of various qualities.
In 2011, a state-of-the-art GCR kiln will be put on stream. This will ensure that Warstein remains world-class for many years to come.
Neither our Warstein site, nor any other site poses any environmental risk. Our lime products do not include any "SVHC-Substances of Very High Concern" listed in the ECHA list.

Located in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, just 25 km from the Dutch border, it produces lime for a number of different industrial as well as environmental uses.

We also manufacture quality hydrated lime products for all applications.
The Wettringen site has its own quarry, where hydraulic excavators break away the limestone. Neither our Wettringen works nor any other of our sites presents any risks to the environment. Our lime products contain no substances of very high concern (SVHC) included in the candidate list of the ECHA.
