Cemex USA has been awarded the US Environmental Protection Agency's Eneregy Star certification for 2016 at five of its cement plants. The Brooksville, Miami, Clinchfield, Fairborn and Victorville plants have all been recognised by Eneregy Star for their efforts in energy efficiency and sustainability.

This was the 10th consequitve year that the Clinchfield plant achieved Energy Star Certification. It is one of only two plants in the USA to reach that milestone. It was also the sixth time for the Miami plant to be recognised, the fifth for Victorville and Fairborn and the fourth for Brooksville.

"The effort these plants put into their sustainability initiatives, day in and day out, is a shining example for our industry. We're very proud of the work they've done to attain Energy Star certification this year," said Dr Hugo Bolio, executive vice president Cement Operations and Technology for Cemex USA.

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

To achieve certification, the plants had to perform among the top 25 per cent of similar US facilities for energy conservation and meet the technical requirements of the Energy Star Plant Energy Performance Indicators.
