Gypsum, lime, slurry

For many years, DB Cargo has been ensuring delivery of a reliable and efficient supply of gypsum, lime and slurry to the industrial sector. Every year DB Cargo is transporting six million tons of lime to customers in the chemical, construction material, and coal and steel industries. We DB Cargo deliver lime and burnt lime to German power plants for flue gas desulphurization. This produces large quantities of FGD gypsum that we in turn deliver to the building materials industry. We also provide a continuous and reliable supply of filler and coating materials to the paper industry (GCC, PCC).
