Terra CO2, developer of low-carbon cementitious materials, named Chance Allen as chief operating officer and Anjy Salinas as chief financial officer, ahead of an early-2024 groundbreaking on a charter production facility for the company’s flagship offering, OPUS SCM.
Allen arrives to Terra with 25 years of experience in cement, aggregates and concrete, most recently serving as Holcim US regional head, Western United States, following a lengthy tenure in Martin Marietta Materials management. Meanwhile, Salinas brings 20 years of financial acumen and industry experience, primarily at Satterfield & Pontikes Construction, Houston.
Concurrent with Allen and Salinas’ appointments, Terra CO2 has named Michele Blackburn as commercial director, who joins the startup with 10-plus years at Johns Manville and Saint-Gobain business units.
“As we transition to deployment of our first commercial plants, these strategic appointments will ensure our readiness to meet the growing demand for sustainable building materials,” said Bill Yearsley, CEO of Terra CO2.
Terra’s proprietary technology converts inexpensive, abundant and local feedstocks – primarily from aggregate operations – to high-performing and cost-competitive cementitious material. The proprietary process has been demonstrated in a pilot reactor and companion equipment at the company’s headquarters outside Denver.
