NEW MATERIALS CREATE NEW OPPORTUNITIES
Fortera cement matches the price, performance, and workability of Portland cement, but with 60+% less CO₂ emissions.
PARALLEL INTEGRATION WITH EXISTING CEMENT PLANTS
The cement is produced using similar feedstocks and equipment used to make Portland cement. Building at existing cement sites allows for parallel production of Fortera cement utilizing existing resources.
FORTERA CEMENT COMPOSITION SIMPLIFIES THE PROCESS
SIMPLIFIED INPUTS, LOWER KILN TEMPERATURES, AND REDUCED ENERGY DEMAND
Fortera cement is made from limestone only. Portland cement is a calcined blend of limestone, silica, iron oxide, gypsum and alumina. By reducing the inputs to just limestone, kilns can operate at lower temperatures and handle higher throughputs at the same scale.
Fortera is able to reduce carbon emissions and store captured CO₂ into the built environment, mimicking the way nature stores CO₂. With the help of the cement industry, we are able to offer a technology solution that is able to make a noticeable difference in global emissions.
