Six Cemex USA cement plants earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification. The recognition of Cemex’s plants in Brooksville and Miami, Fla.; Clinchfield, Ga.; Fairborn, Ohio; Louisville, Ky. and Victorville, Calif., demonstrates that these facilities perform among the top 25 percent of similar U.S. facilities for energy conservation.
This year marks the eighth consecutive year of certification for the Clinchfield plant, an achievement realized by only one other cement plant in the United States, the fourth consecutive certification for the Miami plant, the third for the Brooksville, Victorville and Fairborn plants, and the sixth year for the Louisville plant.
Throughout the year, all of the recognized plants put into practice the energy efficiency principles established by the ENERGY STAR Guidelines for Energy Management developed by EPA. These plants implemented energy conservation and monitoring technologies, promoted energy efficiency awareness among employees, and completed energy reduction projects.
“Cemex is committed to sustainable practices throughout our operations, including energy efficiency,” said Karl Watson, Jr., president of Cemex USA. “We are honored to again be recognized by the EPA and Energy Star for our commitment to sustainable practices.”
