CalPortland converts Mojave cement plant production to portland-limestone cement
Published by Emily Thomas,
CalPortland has announed the conversion of its Mojave cement plant to ADVANCEMENT™ HS, a blended portland-limestone cement. The plant, located in southern California annually produces approximately 1.3 million t of cement. By switching production from ordinary portland cement to portland-limestone cement, the plant will reduce its carbon emissions by 10% on a per ton basis. This equates to removing 25 411 gasoline-powered vehicles off the road for one year.
“CalPortland continues its commitment to producing sustainable, resilient materials,” said CalPortland President/CEO Allen Hamblen. “Portland-limestone cements significantly reduce the amount of CO2 emissions produced during the cement manufacturing process without sacrificing performance. The ADVANCEMENT™ line of products is another key solution to helping CalPortland and our customers, achieve our carbon reduction goals.”
The transition from ordinary portland cement to portland-limestone cement supports the Portland Cement Association’s Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality, and the industry’s overall efforts to address climate change.
