Four Cemex USA plants win Energy Star certification

Published by

Four Cemex USA cement-manufacturing plants have earned the US Environmental Protection Agency Energy Star Certification in 2015. Plants in Miami, Fl., Clinchfield, Ga., Fairborn, Ohio and Victorville, Ca. have been recognised. This ranks the performance of these facilities among the top 25% of similar US facilities for energy conservation, and marks the ninth consecutive year of certification for the Clinchfield plant, the fifth for the Miami plant and the fourth for the Victorville and Fairborn plants.

Three Cemex USA ready-mix plants (La Porte, TX, Mission, TX, and Rosenburg, TX) met the Energy Star challenge by committing to the pre-established goal of reducing energy intensity by 10% within 5 years or less by the replacement and use of more energy efficient parts and equipment, such as dust collectors, conveyor belt pulleys and lighting.

“CEMEX is committed to sustainable practices throughout our operations, including energy efficiency,” said Karl H. 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.”

Cemex is a corporate partner of the EPA Energy Star programme and is an active proponent of the importance of energy efficiency.
