“By the end of 2022, Buzzi Unicem USA and Alamo Cement Company will implement full conversion from traditional ASTM C150 Type I and II cements (OPC) to ASTM C595 Type IL (PLC) cement. The conversion begins with our plants in Cape Girardeau and Festus, Missouri; Greencastle, Indiana; Maryneal, Texas; and Pryor, Oklahoma, making the transition to Type IL (PLC) by the end of Q1 2022. Alamo Cement Company in San Antonio, Texas, will complete its transition by mid-2022 followed by our Chattanooga, Tennessee, plant in Q3 2022. And finally, our Stockertown, Pennsylvania, plant will fully convert by year end. Type IL (PLC) cement can reduce the CO2 emissions up to 15% in comparison with traditional cement.”
