Lafarge Canada, Progressive Planet Sign PozGlass Deal

Lafarge Canada has agreed to purchase all the PozGlass 100G produced by Progressive Planet’s planned pilot plant in Kamloops, British Columbia – up to 3,500 metric tonnes per year. 

Made from 100% post-consumer glass, PozGlass replaces carbon emitting ingredients used in the production of most cement. It can also replace fly ash in concrete, according to Progressive Planet. 

The purchase agreement allows the clean tech developer to focus on proving the patent-pending PozGlass technology as a bolt-on solution for existing cement plants in North America and around the globe.

“The purchase agreement is an enormous accomplishment,” said Progressive Planet VP of Strategy and Investor Relations Ian Grant. “It positions us for global licensing and royalties, which will be an important revenue driver for our company.”

Lafarge has provided technical guidance and support to Progressive Planet in advancing the proprietary PozGlass technology through design, construction and operation of the pilot plant, which is expected to come online next year.
