Raw material Calcite

AquaMinerals B.V. / Grondstof Calciet

The use of calcite as inoculum in the water softening process is unique in the world. In contrast to the standard softening process, in which sand is used as inoculum, sand-free calcite granules are the result of calcite inoculation. This means that the extracted calcite will be available for all kinds of applications, and this is a major advantage since it is a popular raw material. The calcite pellets are extracted at more than 50 production locations in the Netherlands and Flanders.
