Excellent workability and performance
For use as a Supplementary Cementitious Material up to 35%
UP TO 100%
Can be co-blended with portland cement or used as a substitute
And curing characteristics as portland cement
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.
