Carolina AAC and Wehrhahn GmbH have announced that Carolina AAC will open its first plant to produce Autoclaved Aerated Concrete, an innovative energyefficient building material.
The project will be located in Bennettsville, S.C., providing area architects, engineers and contractors with access to a sustainable, fire-resistant and environmentally friendly material that provides excellent temperature-controlling insulation. The location will also allow shipping to reach 80 percent of the United States market within 24 hours.
AAC, used to create internal and external wall systems in residential and commercial structures, has been a predominant structural material around the world for several decades but is relatively new to the United States. The Carolina AAC plant will supply AAC blocks suitable for projects seeking LEED or similar certification.
