From the study of the ancient techniques of building, formulation, and production of specific materials for historical, archaeological, monumental restoration and sustainable construction. Calchèra San Giorgio Research and Formulation Center studies and produces specialist materials for restoration, structural consolidation, and renewal of buildings of historical interest.

We produce mortars, plasters, leveling mortars, coatings, paints, and finishing: breathable, biocompatible and sustainable, free from substances harmful to health and the environment.
Banca della Calce specializes in the use of lime for the creation of the highest quality materials; the company proposes itself as a reference point in the development and distribution of knowledge of technologies related to this material with very ancient origins but with a "green" and sustainable future.
Joan Mestre Ramis (Felanitx, Majorca) is the president of FICAL: THE IBERIAN FORUM OF THE CAL. A non-profit association whose purpose is the development of research, training and dissemination of the production and use of the lime. FICAL can be part of both physical and legal persons, with the capacity to act as requested, provided they accept the rights and obligations that correspond to them as members of the association.
From 1868 we extract limestone from our quarries and through the cooking in the ovens of the Piasco plant we transform it into live lime and its derivatives. We offer our customers eco-friendly and natural products, made by specialized personnel with modern means, aimed at satisfying multiple needs in different sectors. Lime proved to be useful in construction, in agriculture, in breeding, in the steel industry, in the purification and for numerous other applications.
