Two Argos plants receive ENERGY STAR® certification

Argos’ Newberry and Roberta cement plants, located in Florida and Alabama, have received ENERGY STAR® certification from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in recognition of their efficient use of energy resources and environmental care.

To receive the certification, the two plants had to perform in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. ENERGY STAR recognises industrial plants that offer products and services with low energy consumption and that develop strategies that lead to substantial energy savings.

By improving its energy performance, which includes the burning of alternative fuels, managing energy strategically across the plant, and making other cost-effective improvements, the Argos Newbury and Roberta cement plants were again able to score in the top quartile of all cement plants in the US.

“At Argos, we have ambitious goals to lessen our impact on the planet by reducing our energy and water consumption, increasing the use of alternative fuels in our production process, and decreasing our CO2 emissions. We are excited to receive this distinction because it is just one more way that we can showcase how hard our employees work in support of the sustainable development of our company,” says Eric Flesch, Argos President – USA Region.
