The US EPA has announced that 70 manufacturing plants have achieved ENERGY STAR certification for their superior energy performance in 2015.
CalPortland’s Rillito, AZ cement manufacturing facility is amongst those recognised by US EPA and have been awarded ENERGY STAR certification. This recognition indicates that the Rillito, AZ manufacturing facility has operated among the top 25% of energy performance in the cement industry during 2015. ENERGY STAR certified plants must have their energy performance independently verified. Plants from the cement manufacturing, automotive, corn refining, food processing, glass manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and petroleum refining industries are among those that qualified in 2015. EPA has certified manufacturing plants with the ENERGY STAR since 2006.
“ENERGY STAR certified manufacturing plants are driving the kinds of efficiency and innovations that keep our country strong,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “They’re proving every day that businesses can save on energy, cut down on bills, and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions all at the same time.”
Since the inception of EPA’s ENERGY STAR® certification, a total of 148 manufacturing plants have achieved this distinction.
