The rising rates of carbide lime waste (CLW), the by-product of acetylene production, cause environmental problems and need for the repurposing of the said material. The high content of calcium in such by-products (60–80%) is the main reason for its utilization in CO2 sequestration. This study focused on using of CLW to form simple, reliable, cost-efficient process, applying direct solid-liquid-gas carbonation reaction, which consists of bubbling CO2 gas through an aqueous slurry of slaked CLW with different solid /water ratios. The experimental conditions were adjusted for maximum carbonation efficiency. Experimental results indicated that CLW has the potential to store CO2 in the form of stable carbonates. Considering the total calcium content, an amount of 0.5833 kg CO2 /kg CLW was achieved. The influence of solid/water ratio on the precipitation of calcium carbonate was investigated using SEM that showed a difference in crystal carbonate sizes and morphologies.
