The plant receives raw pozzolan by truck, has a 15,000 square foot storage building, a rotary dryer, belt conveyor systems, a Cemengal Plug & Grind ball mill system, pneumatic conveyance systems, three storage silos for finished product and truck loadout systems.

​​​​​​​Finished product is loaded out into pneumatic bulk trucks for transport to customers. The loadout system is designed to load out typical 40-ton double trailers in less than 15 minutes.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​All aspects of the plant are operated from the central control room.  The plant also features a Quality Control laboratory, offices, and maintenance facilities.
​​​​​​​​​​Construction began in late 2020 and was completed in less than twelve months, despite significant issues with the Covid pandemic and international transport logistics. 

​​​​​​​Local contractors and vendors were used where practical and nationally recognized firms were used for specialty work.

Innovative Engineering Creates Best Products

Geofortis'  in-house Research and Development team consists of engineers and scientists working in both Reno and Utah to evaluate natural pozzolan sources and optimize product development.

We have conducted thousands of tests over 6+ years to identify and prove the efficacy of our natural pozzolans for superior concrete performance.  We have worked with large concrete producers to confirm our results and establish a market presence. We have demonstrated the benefits of our products both in the lab, in our pilot scale plant and in full-scale concrete pours.

Our labs are fully equipped to conduct mortar and concrete testing using ASTM and AASHTO methods, including x-ray diffraction (XRD), ASR Expansion, Compressive Strength, Particle Size Distributions (PSD) and more. 

Our environmentally friendly products improve concrete strength and durability, reduce permeability and provide cost savings for producers on both small and large scales.  Geofortis’ natural pozzolans have been proven to solve the severe problem of poor quality aggregates that exist across the broader Western US.
