Calera Corporation. Calera’s innovative process captures carbon dioxide emissions emitted by coal or gas-fired power plants and converts it into calcium and magnesium carbonates for use in manufacturing carbon negative products such as sand, aggregate, supplementary cementitious materials, and cement, as well as fresh water.
