CO₂ TO CEMENT

The world’s first economical carbon utilization technology.

In traditional cement production, 44% of the limestone fed into the process is decomposed into CO₂ almost doubling your limestone mining, grinding, and calcining costs. Since Fortera does not release CO₂, every ton of feedstock results in one ton of sellable product, creating an economic advantage.

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 MAKES A RARE FORM OF REACTIVE CALCIUM CARBONATE

Reactive Calcium Carbonate (CaCO₃) is naturally formed when Calcium and CO₂ come into contact. In nature, this combination results in a cementitious reaction forming hard materials and robust structures such as shells, rocks, and reefs.

Fortera has developed a process for recreating this natural cement with the ability to stabilize it in a dry powder form only activating its cementitious properties the next time it is wetted.

Our reactive 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.
