CEMEX’s Balcones Quarry in New Braunfels, Texas, US, and CEMEX’s Gator Sand Mine in Davenport, Florida, US, each earned NSSGA Environmental Excellence Gold Awards, in recognition of their dedication to the exemplary use of environmental controls and systems. Three more CEMEX aggregates operations received NSSGA Environmental Excellence Silver Awards, and eight additional operations earned NSSGA Environmen-tal Excellence Bronze Awards.

“At CEMEX, we take pride in being good stewards for the environment, and we strive to pursue excellence while serving as good neighbours in the communities where we operate,” said CEMEX USA President, Jaime Muguiro. “We are proud of these opera-tions for reaching and maintaining such high standards while serving as examples oth-ers can emulate.”
