Market Applications

Much has been written about lime and its importance in commerce both in the past and in today's market economy. Its use predates recorded history. Most ancient languages have a word for calcium oxide. In Latin it is calx, from which the name of the element calcium is taken. In Old English, its name is līm, which is the origin of the modern commercial name for calcium oxide, namely lime.
