Expert Answer:

Anaerobic is a technical word which literally means without air (where "air" is generally used to mean oxygen).Calcination is a more specific term implying a thermal treatment process applied to ores and other solid materials in order to bring about a thermal decomposition, phase transition, or removal of a volatile fraction.It is anaerobic as the process takes place in absence of air.
