Calcium Carbonate is produced commercially in two different grades: Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC), produced via extraction and processing of naturally occurring deposits; and Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC), produced via chemical processes or as a by-product of some bulk chemical processes. Calcium Carbonate is largely employed in the pulp and paper and in the construction industries. Other applications are in fertilizers, water and sewer treatment plants, as well as in the manufacturing of other products, like glass, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Calcium Carbonate production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
