CEMEX USA has announced that its Miami, Fla., cement plant has been recognised by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the 11th consecutive year for its ongoing energy efficiency and sustainability efforts, earning 2021 ENERGY STAR® Certification.
Over the past decade, employees at CEMEX’s Miami Cement Plant have continued to follow EPA ENERGY STAR guidelines, utilising energy conservation technologies and processes aimed at certification. To earn the achievement each year, including for the 2021 certification, operations at the Miami Cement Plant had to reach ENERGY STAR Plant Energy Performance Indicators and rank in the top 25% of similar US facilities.
“Sustainability and conservation are ingrained in our operations and our business, so we constantly seek opportunities to decrease our energy use and reduce environmental impacts,” said CEMEX USA President Jaime Muguiro. “Our team at our Miami Cement Plant is helping set the standard for our industry, demonstrating what can be possible, and we are proud of their ongoing environmental performance and commitment.”
The certification is the latest accolade for CEMEX USA from the EPA ENERGY STAR Programme. The company was recently named 2021 EPA ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for Sustained Excellence, marking the third consecutive year for the honour. Since 2007, CEMEX USA cement plants have earned more than 50 ENERGY STAR® Certifications. In addition, dozens of CEMEX USA cement terminals and ready-mix concrete operations have achieved the ENERGY STAR® Challenge for Industry.
