In his new role, DiCosola will lead Fortera’s project commercialization efforts, building a team capable of scaling and deploying large capital projects globally. As a technology development and project execution veteran, DiCosola has demonstrated leadership in executing engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) projects focusing on sustainable technologies. 

“Our focus is on deploying Fortera’s ReCarb green cement-making technology and commercialization of ReAct green cement,” said Fortera CEO and Co-Founder Ryan Gilliam. “Greg’s proven track record of successfully engaging with EPC firms to deploy sustainable technology on an industrial scale makes him an ideal fit to help bring our plants to completion quickly and efficiently. The time for action to decarbonize the cement industry is now, and we are pleased to welcome Greg to Fortera to guide project execution.”

Most recently, DiCosola served as vice president of capital projects and operations at Twelve, a cleantech company focused on power to liquids and SAF production, where he shepherded a new technology through implementation at existing industrial plants. 

This appointment marks a significant step forward for Fortera, positioning the company to continue executing commercial growth in the coming year. The company is nearing completion of its first carbon mineralization production plant in Redding, Calif. In collaboration with CalPortland, the plant is expected to produce 15,000 metric tons of low-carbon cement annually.
