Our flagship product is PozGlass SCM. This extraordinary product is a combination of post-consumer glass and natural pozzolan that enhance the performance of this ultralow carbon footprint supplementary cementing material (SCM).
In addition to our pozzolan-based product development, Progressive Planet also has an active applied research program with resources dedicated to finding innovative solutions to reduce the carbon footprint of cement. These efforts are focused on:
- Using small amounts of cementitious nanoparticles to replace larger volumes of cement powders with the goal of providing equivalent strength with a lower carbon footprint.
- Optimizing the conversion of carbon dioxide into calcium carbonate. In essence, we are researching ways to reverse the main process used to make Portland Cement, called calcination. Reversing calcination involves taking CO2 and converting it back to a permanent mineral state.
- Developing alternative cements made at lower temperatures with smaller amounts of calcination, by replacing limestone with other ingredients that off-gas less CO2.
Progressive Planet operates its flagship Z1 Natural Pozzolan Quarry in Cache Creek, British Columbia. We are also earning a 100% interest in the Z2 Natural Pozzolan Property near Falkland, British Columbia and earning a 100% interest in the Heffley Creek Metals and Natural Pozzolan Property. All three properties are within a one-hour drive of Kamloops, British Columbia, an important industrial hub with rail access to Canadian and US markets.
