Cement is essential
for building our world
fortera provides a pathway
to a zero CO₂ future
8% OF THE WORLD’S
come from Cement and Concrete
Tons of Cement Per Year
Tons of CO₂ Emitted Per Year
Fortera captures CO₂ directly emitted from the cement plant, turning a problem into a product.
FEWER EMISSIONS THAN TRADITIONAL CEMENT WITH A REALISTIC PATHWAY TO ZERO CO₂
A CLEANER WAY TO MAKE A FAMILIAR MATERIAL
Similar performance, workability, and curing characteristics as traditional cement.
Tapping into the same quarries, grinders, and kilns already in use at every cement plant.
A FUNDAMENTALLY BETTER CEMENT
TO MANUFACTURE USING THE SAME INFRASTRUCTURE
LOWER KILN TEMPERATURES,
is made from
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.
Working within the cement industry and the existing infrastructure, Fortera produces a lower cost product that can be sold in all markets. For every ton of Fortera cement used, almost half a ton of CO₂ is permanently stored in our built environment.
