Due to the environmental hazard that had been contributed from limestone mining activity to the surrounding area, waste cockle shell has been identified as a visible alternative for replacing limestone as source of calcium carbonate. Instead of escalating the potential risk of depleting of hills to excavate calcium carbonate, waste cockle shell is much more sustainable due to the annual production of the aquatic species that is recorded to be more than 40,000 metric ton per year. This study will focus on idea of conceptual production plant with a main objective to produce calcium chloride from waste cockle shell. Several designs are proposed with feasibility study conducted accordingly. To conclude, cockle shell is one of the best alternatives to limestone in producing calcium chloride. Cockle shell does not cause any environmental impact and it help to reduce solid waste produce from domestic waste, in particular cockle shell waste.
