Overview

Soon after the first edition of this book appeared in 1966, it was acclaimed as the "bible" of the lime and limestone industry. Certainly it was the most comprehensive and authoritative study of the subject, an indispensable reference text for chemists, engineers, and researchers, as well as designers of plants and equipment for both this industry and the many others which employed its products in the U.S. and abroad. So valuable was it considered by the mammoth Nippon Steel Corporation of Japan, for instance, that the company at prodigious expense translated it into Japanese for that country’s own steel, quarry, lime and cement facilities. In the intervening years, however, extensive technological developments—largely the result of environmental impact and energy constraints, inflation, and industry growth—have created the need for this new, updated version, one which has been so drastically revised and rewritten as to become virtually a new book. Here, then, is the timely second edition of Boynton’s classic Chemistry and Technology of Lime and Limestone. It surveys the technological state-of-the-art worldwide, particularly in the U.S., Germany, and Japan. Like the first edition, its emphasis is less on theory than on such practical considerations as the extraction and manufacture of lime and limestone, uses, and applications. And unlike many other technical books, it offers valuable insights into the personality of the industry—its problems and limitations, its statistical trends, and how business is actually done. For anyone who is or wants to be a part of the lime/limestone industry, this is clearly the one book to own, read, and refer to.
