THE LIME SITES
In lime deposits, lime putty is aged under controlled conditions. In kilns, natural hydraulic lime is produced at low temperatures, making it an exceptional binder. Lime sites are the heirs of a secular tradition, where the quarry, the kilns and the land where the lime was used were very close. Today, using lime produced in these plants means not only choosing quality, but also respect for the environment and history. Old-fashioned materials. Very low environmental impact.
