Description

Location: CA-QC - Canada, Québec
This dataset represents the production of milled quicklime in Quebec (Canada), from quicklime in pieces

The only quicklime producer in Quebec provided the electricity consumption for quicklime milling.

Infrastructure data was extrapolated from "quicklime production, milled, loose, GLO 2000-2002" ecoinvent dataset: The value of the infrastructure is normalized with a annual production capacity of about 23'000 tons of product per year. The estimated lifespan of the machines is 25 years. There are no significant dust emissions as a dust control system is installed.

Quicklime is used for acid neutralization, SO2 absorption, sludge stabilization or other industrial alkali applications.
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.
