Effective treatment for acid sulphate soils
Aglime limesand from Dongara has the highest neutralising value and the smallest particle size making it the most effective treatment for acid sulphate soils. The fine particle size and high percentage of calcium carbonate in Aglime limesand means you need less to neutralise more, saving you transport and handling costs.
The effectiveness of a treatment material becomes more important as freight cost increases. Freighting a large percentage of ineffective product over large distances is a major expense that can be avoided by choosing a higher quality limesand.
With distances over a few hundred kms the freight cost far outweighs the price of the product. The higher the quality the less you need and the substancially lower your frieght bill will be.
Aglime limesand is recognised as the cheapest choice for projects in the far north of WA and NT, whether shipped or freighted by road. Dongara is only 65km from Geraldton port making shipping Aglime from Dongara the most cost-effective option for some projects.

Supply & Deliver
Aglime of Australia can arrange the supply and transport of high quality limesand to your work site anywhere in the state. Limesand is safe to handle with none of the costly OH&S requirements of hydrated lime.
Supply and delivery has been arranged to projects including the Chevron Wheatstone Project protecting piping from acid sulphate corrosion and the Forrestfield tunnel.
Dongara Aglime has a neutralising value around 95%, far higher than other liming materials available.
The effectiveness of agricultural lime for the treatment of of acid sulphate soil has been accepted on the basis of particle size to be: 100% effective for particles <0.300mm; 60% effective between 0.300 mm to 0.850mm and 0.10% effective for particles >0.850mm (Stone et al. 1998).
Dongara Aglime contains 92% of particles under 0.300mm and only 0.1% over 0.850mm, meaning more product will react to neutralise acid in the soil.
