Calportland says two of its cement plants has received Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star certifications for 2018 for its commitment to energy management and efficiency.
The Rillito plant in Arizona has received the certification for the seventh consecutive year while the Oro Grande facility in California has earned the Energy Star recognition for the second time, the company adds.
According to Calportland, the company improved its energy performance by managing energy strategically across the entire organisation and by making cost-effective improvements to its plants, the company adds.
Allen Hamblen, President/CEO CalPortland, says: “Through the hard work of our employee teams at both Rillito and Oro Grande and our corporate energy efficiency culture, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to environmental stewardship while also reducing our energy costs.”
Jean Lupinacci, chief of the Energy Star commercial and industrial branch, says: “Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s industrial facilities is critical to protecting our environment. From the plant floor to the board room, organisations are leading the way by making their facilities more efficient and earning EPA’s Energy Star certification.”
