Calcareous rocks are each made up of some form of calcium carbonate (calcite, aragonite, or dolomite). However, they are very different in their molecular composition, the processes that create them, and their physical properties. Sedimentary limestone, metamorphic marble, and travertine stalactites are all calcareous rocks.Conclusions. In this study, calcareous oil shale was investigated as a potential raw material for the production of low-carbon cement. It was demonstrated that oil shale can replace up to 76 % of raw materials used in clinker manufacturing.
