Titan America has announced the full conversion of its cement plants to the production of Type IL portland-limestone cement, a low carbon construction material.
It is the first US-based cement company to fully make the conversion to the cement type, supporting Titan Cement Group’s commitment to deliver net zero concrete by 2050.
The company is building two 70,000-ton storage domes, both expected to significantly increase Titan’s capacity to provide Type IL cement for future infrastructure construction.
In February 2022, Titan’s Essex Cement announced it would be distributing Type IL exclusively and its reduction of CO2 emissions over the last year is equivalent to the offset achieved by planting 17,000 trees.
Bill Zarkalis President & Chief Executive Officer of Titan America said: “I would like to thank all members of the Titan America team who are able and energised to provide the highest performing products to our customers and do so with our 2030 goals for a sustainable future at top of mind.
“Our conversion to 100% Type IL production and our expanded investments to deliver lower carbon products and solutions to customers showcase the progress we have made and our commitment to accelerate our contribution to addressing climate change.”
