16 June 2017

Egypt-based Arabian Cement Company (ACC) has been honoured with the ‘2017 Award of Excellence in Energy Management’ by Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM8), a high-level global forum that promotes policies and programmes to advance clean energy.

CEM8 energy ministers presented the award to Mahmoud Mohsen, director of the energy department at ACC, at the annual CEM meeting in Beijing, China, earlier this month.

The Award of Excellence in Energy Management recognises efforts by organisations to transform the way they use energy.

With a capacity of 5Mta, ACC worked with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) to establish a systematic approach to manage, monitor and improve its energy performance. The energy team engaged all departments to improve plant production, maintenance, quality and energy efficiency. Savings at the site over three years totaled US$8.74m with a reduction of 127,147t of CO2 emissions.
