Terra CO2 has performed a successful demonstration pour of its OPUS silicate-based supplementary cementitious material (SCM) at a construction site in Texas. Terra CO2 supplied the SCM to indiGO Auto Group for the construction of its Porsche Sugar Land car dealership in Houston. It says that the product delivers durability, strength and functionality on a par with other, traditional SCMs. Tonne-for-tonne, the use of OPUS reduces projects’ CO2 emissions by 70%, and their NOx emissions by 90%, compared to ordinary Portland cement (OPC).
Terra CO2 CEO Bill Yearsley said “Our work at Terra CO2 is about forging a viable path for sustainable construction. We’re set on creating a blueprint for the future where performance, cost-effectiveness and sustainability coexist seamlessly across projects. We’re moving beyond the lab, beyond the processes that have held us back as an industry, and introducing a sustainable solution to real-world applications.”
