  • Should this be converted to pounds? Cubic meters to what?
  • “ based on semi-detached house with GFA of 48 sq m and detached house with GFA 52 sq m)
  • CO2 calculations have been changed. If 180,000 houses in the U.K.=9 mil tons CO2, then 1.5 mil houses in U.S. would save 75 mil T
  • 60-70 m3 = 2,119 – 2,472 ft3??? Is this right???

    13. 13. The Lime Cycle CO 2 CO 2 H 2 O H 2 O Ca(OH) 2 CaCO 3 LIMESTONE CALCIUM CARBONATE QUICKLIME CALCIUM OXIDE HYDRATED LIME CALCIUM HYDROXIDE Limestone is burned in a kiln at around 900 °C to make quicklime Quicklime is slaked with water to make dry hydrated lime or lime putty Air limes harden by drying and carbonation. Heat CaO Heat All CO 2 emitted from the calcination of the limestone can be re-absorbed upon full carbonation The CO 2 emitted by the burning of the fuel is not re-absorbed
