lime 
 Lime sold by producers was used for chemicals (80%), construction (11%),
re' fractories (8%) , and agriculture (1%). 
 Captive lime used by producers was 34% of the total, compared with 37% in

 Leading individual uses were basic oxygen steel furnaces, alkalies, water
purificalion, and refractories, which together ac 
counted for 58% of the total consumption, compared with 56% in 1971. 
 Lime used in agriculture reversed the downward trend of recent years and
expanded 72%. Lime used for refractory dolomite also reversed the downward
trend and increased 7% . Construction uses continued to expand, increasing
2%. Lime for chemical and industrial use also continued to expand, increasing
9%.
