(57) The invention pertains to a process for modifying gypsum, wherein a continuous feed of raw gypsum is provided; the water content of the raw gypsum is determined in the continuous feed by near infrared spectroscopy (NIR) measurement; the raw gypsum is calcined in a calcination unit at a fire rate to remove water from the raw gypsum and to obtain a continuous feed of calcined gypsum having a water content within a selected range; a water content of the calcined gypsum is determined by near infrared spectroscopy, and the fire rate is adjusted based on the water content of the raw gypsum and of the calcined gypsum. Further, the invention pertains to an apparatus for performing said process.
