Lime for everyday life

Limestone is an essential raw material

Lime in paper industry

Ground Calcium Carbonate

The paper and cardboard industries use lime-based coating pigments and fillers such as GCC (Ground Calcium Carbonate). GCC is made from concentrated and fine-ground calcium carbonate and used to make fine paper, cardboard packaging and pulp-based paper.

The calcite for GCC is manufactured in Lappeenranta, Finland, where the local marble is extremely white. The producer of GCC in Lappeenranta is Nordkalk's subsidiary Suomen Karbonaatti Oy.
