Eagle Materials to deploy Terra CO2 supplementary cementitious materials plants in three US markets

Terra CO2 has entered into an exclusive agreement with Eagle Materials, under which the cement producer will set up plants to produce Terra CO2’s supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) in three cities, including Greater Denver in Colorado. Terra CO2’s SCM consists of ground, heated glass spheres made from silicate-containing igneous rocks and sediments, which can be used in cement production to lower CO2 emissions by 70% compared to ordinary Portland cement (OPC).

Terra CO2‘s chief executive officer Bill Yearsley said “New climate tech needs to be deployed quickly to meet 2030 and 2050 climate goals. Terra is working hard to accelerate the deployment of its commercial plants through strategic partnerships, deploying more capital and shortening timelines. We are thrilled to work with a partner like Eagle Materials to build commercial plants for sustainable construction, and act on this urgency through our shared commitment to action. In the absence of a ‘climate tech express lane’ from the government, working with industry leaders is key to innovating and expediting low-carbon solutions for the industry.”
