Argos Continues PLC Transition in Southeast U.S.

As part of its commitment to sustainability, Argos is converting production and distribution to portland-limestone cement (PLC) at its Roberta plant (Calera, Ala.) and Wilmington, Statesville and Durham terminals in North Carolina by the end of the second quarter of 2022.

This transition to PLC, a lower CO2 intensive cement, is part of the producer’s overall sustainability strategy to produce this type of cement at all its plants in 2023.

“We are excited to announce the transition of the Roberta Plant to 100 % portland-limestone cement (PLC) Type IL,” said Bill Wagner, chief executive officer of Argos USA. “With this transition we continue to support our customers and the industry on its road to lower greenhouse gas emissions. With PLC we are supplying a more environmentally friendly building solution for our customers, engineered to deliver an outstanding quality and performance while lowering our carbon footprint.”

The Argos Roberta cement plant, when fully converted to PLC, is expected to produce more than 1.7 million tpy of cement servicing a range of customers throughout Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida.

The company currently produces Argos PLC Type IL at its Newberry, Fla.; Harleyville, S.C.; and Martinsburg, W.V., plants. Argos intends to continue to lead the promotion of PLC in the southeastern United States to build together a more sustainable present and future.
