In Canada, the transition to PLC started some years ago. “This has been a long-term goal for our operations,” explains Cory Cannon, VP of Sales and Logistics. “Through collaboration with municipalities, constructors, and engineers, we have been encouraging the shift since 2011.”
The Richmond plant is the first one to manufacture only PLC across British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest. Since 2011, when Richmond began producing the lower carbon cement, one million tons of CO2 have been eliminated from the atmosphere - the equivalent of taking a quarter of a million vehicles off Canada’s roads for an entire calendar year.
