CEMEX USA has received ENERGY STAR Certification for four cement plants, including the Clinchfield plant, which was certified for an 11th consecutive year – the longest period of certification by a US cement plant.
CEMEX USA accepts EPA ENERGY STAR certificates for energy efficiency at the company’s Houston headquarters.
“Sustainability is embedded into our strategy,” said Ignacio Madridejos, CEMEX USA President, who accepted the certification for the four plants from a representative of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on 4 December 2017.
“We’re continuously looking for opportunities to reduce our emissions and energy use through processes in production, transportation, and continuing reliance on alternative fuels.”
The EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification is earned by ranking in the top 25% for energy efficiency when compared to similar US facilities. In addition to Clinchfield, the Brooksville South, Miami, and Victorville plants were also certified.
According to the EPA, the four facilities consumed 3.4 trillion Btus less energy than similar US cement plants. “Strong energy performance in a corporation starts at the top and your commitment and support can help CEMEX reach new levels of achievement,” said the EPA in a letter to the company.</
