Six Cemex USA cement plants achieve Energy Star® certification.

World Cement,

Six of Cemex USA’s cement plants have been recognised with the US EPA’s Energy Star® certification:

  • Brooksville, Fla.
  • Miami, Fla.
  • Clinchfield, Ga.
  • Fairborn, Ohio.
  • Louisville, Ky.
  • Victorville, Calif.

This is the eighth year in a row that the Clinchfield plant has been awarded the certification, a feat matched by only one other cement plant in the US. This year marks the sixth consecutive year that the Louisville plant has achieved the Energy Star®, the fourth for the Miami plant and the third for the Brooksville, Victorville and Fairborn cement plants.

The certification demonstrates that these plants are in the top 25% of facilities of their kind in the country. Over the year, the sites have put into practice the energy efficiency principles of the Energy Star® Guidelines for Energy Management, which were developed by the EPA. This includes, energy conservation and monitoring techniques, reducing energy consumption, as well as encouraging energy efficiency awareness among staff.

“Cemex is committed to sustainable practices throughout our operations, including energy efficiency,” commented Karl Watson, Jr., President of Cemex USA. “We are honoured to again be recognised by the EPA and Energy Star for our commitment to sustainable practices.”
