Built Environment

LimeX has recently shown to be successful as a cap & fill material in construction. Its consistency and relative inertness makes it an excellent candidate for an economic alternative to traditional materials.

  • consistent specification
  • compressive strength
  • sustainable

Consistent Specification

The manufacturing process of LimeX is highly automated and fully audited, resulting in an assured level of consistency.

Full details can be seen in the Material Safety Data Sheet

Compressive Strength

Ultra-fine particle size and a controlled moisture content ensure that LimeX responds well to mechanical compaction.


LimeX is an outstanding example of sustainability. The product is a recycled co-product of British Sugar's beet processing and benefits from an ISO-accredited manufacturing discipline that ensures total quality control.

Case Study

Ecofil70 was recently used successfully in the construction of a lorry park ...

Benefits of using Limex

Concern over decline of liming

The British Survey of Fertiliser Practice* suggests that the steady decline in agricultural land area receiving lime in Britain appears to be reversing slowly for arable agriculture, but for grassland agriculture it is a differerent and more worrying story – see ‘News and Events’ for more information.

The survey also concludes that this area is still considerably less than that calculated to require liming. In addition, it states the principle causes of acidification have not lessened, and it is reasonable to believe that significant areas of arable land, and more particularly grassland, are at a pH level which could limit productivity.

*Organised and jointly funded by the Fertiliser Manufacturers' Association (FMA), the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Scottish Executive Rural Affairs.


Proven over more than 80 years, LimeX is an easily spreadable, high-quality liming material ideal for the correction of soil acidity and general conditioning. It is suitable for agriculture, horticulture, brownfield restoration and the built environment.
