Terra CO2 Technology has entered into a definitive agreement with Asher Materials for an exclusive market license of Terra’s first commercial-scale advanced processing facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth market.
Under the agreement, Asher Materials will acquire the plant, which has the capacity to produce 240,000 tpy of Terra’s OPUS Supplementary Cementitious Material (SCM), after construction and commissioning are complete. The deal comes after Terra recently showcased the SCM’s real-world performance during a demonstration pour in Houston.
“The entire Terra team has worked tirelessly to achieve this major milestone – both for Terra and for the industry at large as we move toward our collective goal of decarbonizing cement,” said Bill Yearsley, CEO of Terra CO2. “We are delighted to have Asher Materials as a valued customer partner, and we look forward to expanding our close relationship to license additional Terra facilities across Texas.”
Asher Materials has been working for over a decade constructing first-of-its-kind industrial facilities focused on sustainability and efficiency. The company said it is committed to making the Lone Star State the leader in low-carbon building solutions in the U.S. through its partnership with Terra CO2.
“We’re proud to partner with Terra for our first environmentally friendly plant, making it possible to start building a progressive network of these advanced processing facilities across Texas,” said Jonathan Green from Asher Materials. “Our vision aligns with Terra’s making low-carbon cement the industry standard, one region at a time. In the coming years, we’re committed to transforming Texas into a sustainable, cost-competitive construction leader and establishing a blueprint for other regions.”
Terra has engaged Christensen Building Group’s industrial division out of Houston to construct the facility, which is expected to start in the second quarter of 2024.
