Published: 09 September 2013


Roanoke Cement Company, a subsidiary of Titan America, has been formally recognised as an Exemplary Environmental Enterprise within the Virginia Environmental Excellence Program (VEEP).

VEEP was established in 2000 and RCC was "accepted" as its initial cement producing facility. The facility-based track promotes the use of environmental management systems (EMS) and pollution prevention and serves to help organisations minimise the affect of their operations on the environment.

The certification as an Exemplary Environmental Enterprise by the Virginia DEQ is the latest in environmental recognition for RCC. This year was the seventh consecutive year the US EPA awarded RCC an Energy Star. For the second year in a row, the Troutville plant was the winner of Portland Cement Association's Cement Industry Energy and Environment "Outreach" Award. The Wildlife Habitat Council also certified the site.
