FORTERA RECARB™ PROCESS
The Fortera Recarb™ process re-carbonates Calcium Oxide without losing its cementitious properties. The result is a cementitious mineral that is rich in CO₂.

FORTERA REACTIVE CALCIUM CARBONATE
Fortera cement is similar in its makeup to ground calcium carbonate and precipitated calcium carbonate, but unique in its ability to add to cement’s performance with its cementitious chemistry.
The calcium carbonate reacts with water transforming from spherical particles to a complex structural network of rods. This transformation is where Fortera cement gets its hardening and binding ability.
Cement is the second most consumed product on Earth behind water
Big innovations in this space allow for a big impact in the fight against climate change.
