The manufacture of lime is simple and economical even on a smale scale. Lime has been used in building construction since the earliest civilzations and was used widely used by the Roman builders. However, in the twentieth century it was replaced by Portland cement for mortars, and by gypsum for plasters, although for many applications a lime-cement composite mortar is still preferred and used.
