Supplementary cementitious material process developer Terra CO2 Technology has appointed Chance Allen as chief operating officer and Anjy Salinas as chief financial officer, ahead of an early-2024 groundbreaking on a charter production facility for the company’s flagship offering, OPUS SCM. Terra CO2’s core technology equates to 70 percent lower CO2 emissions than those attending portland cement production. It converts inexpensive, abundant, and local feedstocks—primarily from aggregate operations—to high-performing and cost-competitive cementitious material. The proprietary process has been demonstrated in a pilot reactor and companion equipment at the company’s headquarters outside Denver.
COO Allen arrives after 25 years in cement, aggregates and concrete, most recently serving as Holcim US regional head, Western United States, following a lengthy tenure in Martin Marietta Materials management. CFO Salinas brings 20 years of financial acumen and industry experience, primarily at Satterfield & Pontikes Construction, Houston. Concurrent with their appointments, Terra CO2 has named Michele Blackburn as commercial director, who joins the startup with 10-plus years at Johns Manville and Saint-Gobain business units.
