US: Eco Material Technologies, a producer of sustainable cementitious materials, has opened its Kirkland Pozzolan Mine in Yavapai County, Arizona. The 40-hectare site is one of the largest natural pozzolan mines in the US.
"We are excited for the opening of the Kirkland Pozzolan Mine, which will benefit not only Yavapai County but all of Arizona as well as the surrounding region," said Grant Quasha, CEO of Eco Material Technologies. "Without the support of elected officials, including Governor Doug Ducey, Senator Mark Kelly, State Senator Karen Fann and State Representative Quang Nguyen, we would not be celebrating this milestone achievement."
The event also recognised the hard work and dedication of the plant's employees, as well as Eco Material's contributions to the area including bringing wireless internet service to the surrounding community, planting new trees and generating significant tax revenue for the state.
