Published: 05 January 2016


HeidelbergCement subsidiary Lehigh Hanson has announced that several of its plants have achieved the EPA’s ENERGY STAR® certification for 2015.

Lehigh’s cement plants in Leeds (AL), Union Bridge (MD) and Glen Falls (NY) all performed within the top 25 per cent of cement plants in the USA for energy efficiency, meeting strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.

This is the third-consecutive year the Union Bridge facility has received the certification and the second consecutive year for the Leeds and Glen Falls works.

Lehigh Hanson has also been reducing its environmental impact by implementing operational efficiency programmes across all of its business lines and ensuring that strict energy management is a priority at its production facilities.
