734 MINERALS YEARBOOK, 1972 TECHNOLOGY Tarmac Roadstone Holdings, Ltd. of England, successfully converted a shaft-type lime kiln to the use of liquid butane. Air pollutants from a rotary lime kiln are dependent on the stone charged and the fuel used. The gaseous effluent usually consists of water vapor, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen, and may contain sulfur oxides. The particulate emissions usually include flyash, lime dust, limestone dust and tars, and may include unburned coal. The quantity of dust from a lime kiln may range up to 15% of the kiln feed. New environmental regulations require the abatement of these air pollutants or forced closure of the plant. Present applications use the wet scrubber, fabric filter, or electric precipitator. Alternate methods, which will also control the gaseous einis~ sions, are being studied.
