Titan America Converts to Low-Carbon Cement Production
Titan America LLC has fully converted its cement plants to the production of Type IL Portland-limestone cement, a low-carbon construction material, as part of its goal to deliver net zero concrete by 2050.
The company, a family of heavy building material producers in the Eastern U.S., said it is the first U.S.-based cement company to fully convert to Type IL cement. It also plans to construct two 70,000-ton storage domes to store and serve customers with lower-carbon products.
"I would like to thank all members of the Titan America team who are able and energized to provide the highest performing products to our customers, and do so with our 2030 goals for a sustainable future at top of mind," says Bill Zarkalis President & Chief Executive Officer of Titan America, in a statement. "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."
Titan America partnered with customers in New York City, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida to champion the low-carbon cement for use in their concrete.
