Lhoist continues lime production and supply

Despite the issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic Lhoist UK is maintaining production at both the Hindlow and Whitwell plants.

The lime-based products produced at both these plants are essential for the proper functioning of drinking water and wastewater treatment plants and vital for the treatment and sanitation of sludge from these operations. Lime is used to clean emissions from waste incinerators, energy from waste plants, and other large combustion plants.

Lime is also used in the in the manufacture of primary materials including steel and plastics, which are critical to combating COVID-19.

Many Lhoist employees are now working from home but the plants are still operational. The company is maintaining regular contact with all customers and suppliers through email addresses and personal mobile numbers, and everyone is encouraged to get in touch if and when required.

‘Don’t forget we all have to flatten the curve – so stay well and keep safe for all of our sakes’, commented Gwyn Watkins, Sales and Logistics Director at Lhoist UK.
