Abstract Acid waste waters are usually treated by means of lime in order to meet pH requirements for discharge. Considerable saving may be achieved using limestone in neutralization processes. The feasibility of limestone neutralization processes also in those cases where precipitates form both on the reactive surface and in the liquid bulk as pH rises has been evaluated.

2016-3-7 · Limestone is an alkaline agent with the ability to neutralize, or partially neutralize strong acids. The neutralization process occurs when strong acids, in intimate contact with limestone chips, react with Calcium Carbonate (CaCO 3, the primary constituent of limestone) to form water, carbon dioxide, and calcium salts.The following depicts the neutralization of hydrochloric acid by limestone.

What happens when acid reacts with limestone? | Questions ...

2008-6-15 · Limestone is mostly made up of the mineral calcium carbonate (CaCO3). This is not very soluble, so rocks don''t dissolve very quickly. But if you add an acid, you add hydrogen ions (H+), which will react with the carbonate to form hydrogen carbonate HCO3- ions, which are very soluble in water, and the limestone will dissolve. Or, if there is more acid…

Acid Rain Effects

2015-4-10 · The sulfuric acid reacts with the limestone in a neutralization reaction. Limestone: CaCO 3 + H 2 SO 4--> CaSO 4 + H 2 CO 3. The calcium sulfate is soluble in water and hence the limestone dissolves and crumbles. H 2 CO 3--> CO 2 gas + H 2 O. The original acid (hydrogen ions) have been converted to water in these reactions.
