Cemex USA announced that five of its cement plants have earned the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star Certification.

The recognition of CEMEX USA’s plants in Brooksville (FL), Miami (FL), Clinchfield (GA), Fairborn (OH) and Victorville (CA), ranks these facilities as performing among the top 25 per cent of similar US facilities for energy conservation. 2013 marks the seventh consecutive year of certification for the Clinchfield plant, an achievement realised by only one other cement plant in the the country, the third consecutive certification for the Miami plant, and the second for the Brooksville, Victorville and Fairborn plants.

Throughout the year, all of the recognised plants put into practice the energy efficiency principles established by the Energy Star® Guidelines for Energy Management developed by EPA. These plants implemented energy conservation and monitoring technologies, promoted energy efficiency awareness among employees, and completed energy reduction projects. 

“CEMEX is honoured to be recognised for its ongoing achievements in energy efficiency,” said Karl Watson Jr, President of Cemex USA. “Through consistent enhancements to our energy initiatives year after year, Cemex demonstrates a true commitment to its sustainability goals, and looks forward to continuing its work with the EPA’s Energy Star Programme to attain them.”
