When we remember that lime, either as a phosphate or carbonate, enters into the composition of the hard parts, such as bones and shells, of all living animals, it is an interesting physiological fact [6] to find substances harder than the enamel of teeth, and coloured surfaces as well polished as those of a fresh shell, reformed through inorganic means from dead organic matter -- mocking, also, in shape, some of the lower vegetable productions.
It is much softer, more transparent, and contains more animal matter, than the natural incrustation at Ascension; but we here again see the strong tendency which carbonate of lime and animal matter evince to form a solid substance allied to shell.

USPRwire, Tue Mar 29 2016] Argentinians' annual off-trade carbonates consumption, at 134 litres per capita as of 2015, is the highest in the world.
UKPRwire, Fri Jun 28 2013] Carbonates sales recorded a moderate volume decline in 2012, mostly fuelled up by the growing health concerns of Ukrainian consumers, which led them to move away from non-juice based carbonates towards fruit/vegetable juices or bottled water.
The concept of CyclicCO2R is to create a process that removes the dependency on fossil fuel and increases the energy efficiency to create a net CO2 uptake in the production of cyclic carbonates.
The clasts and matrix present in the carbonate sediments are made from various forms of calcium carbonates and are therefore more prone to dissolution than their clastic rocks counterparts.
Previously, it was thought that fine-grained carbonates, which constitute a major component of marine carbonate sediments, were derived primarily from either direct precipitation from sea water or from the breakdown of the skeletons of marine invertebrates and algae.
The team is working with oil companies Qatar Petroleum and Shell on the 10-year project, called Qatar Carbonates and Carbon Storage Research.
