The large number of names for this fascinating material hints at the versatility that makes it so unique. Quicklime is indispensable in so many areas. Without it, we would have no homes for a start, because there would be no mortar. We would have to travel on rough tracks instead of roads, and the manufacture of glass and paper would be impossible, as would the production of iron and therefore the manufacture of tools. Mankind discovered the benefits of quicklime thousands of years ago. The only way to make it is to burn limestone in a kiln. The natural CO2 contained in the stone is released into the atmosphere, and all that is left is burnt lime: CaO – a hugely versatile raw material.
