Project Overview
The company is planning to build a pilot plant (2 – 5t/day ~ 2000T of cement per year). They are working on building a new process to make cement without CO2 emissions but for clarification, the pilot plant will emit CO2 and their industrial plants won’t in the future. They have large funds and companies behind them in order to bring the project to life. They are looking for around 5 acres of land for a build to suit. Prefer a LEASE but open to both lease and purchase. The plant will be built in Canada and shipped to the location (will take 5-10 containers to import), and then the local construction team will help with the construction of the site, utilities, foundation as well as offices, etc. The company needs to build the pilot plant in Canada because it’s a highly specialized equipment. They have a construction budget of $2 Million. They will hire 5 salaried technicians, 3 salaried supervisors, and 1 salaried executive. The company is being conservative in their job creation estimate and mentioned a few more may be added depending on their needs. The annual payroll for the jobs created will be 800k/year. They will be running a 24-hour operation. 50% of finished goods will stay on-site for more than 30 days and 100% of incoming material will stay on-site for more than 30 days. Their initial interest is close to Reno, NV, or close to Boise, ID but they are open to anything within a 3h flight from San Francisco. The company would like to have a site selected by June 2022 and be operational by November 2022.

Special Requirements
Rail and Port are not important to the project. Expected Water usage: 6500 gal/year max and it won’t increase per year. Expected Electricity usage: ~1MW and it won’t increase over the years. Expected Natural Gas usage: 6 GJ ~ 5686 Bcf and it won’t increase over the year. They are open to outsourcing any of their warehousing, trucking, and logistics activities. They mentioned a few pain points for their company include- Utility (use of natural gas to fire a kiln + some electricity), air permits, and acid permits (similar to a mining operation). A tipping point for them would be easy permitting for operations as fast as possible without any hurdle.
