Cemex plants earn EPA Energy Star Certification

Four Cemex US cement plants achieved the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star certification for 2017, recognizing their efforts in energy efficiency and sustainability.

The plants—Brooksville, Miami, Clinchfield and Victorville— achieved the certification by ranking in the top 25% for energy conservation when compared to similar US plants.

Each plant also had to meet the technical requirements of the Energy Star Plant Energy Performance Indicators.

Throughout the year, all of the recognized plants followed energy-efficiency principles established by the EPA’s Energy Star Guidelines for Energy Management. The plants implemented energy conservation and monitoring technologies, promoted energy-efficiency awareness among employees and completed energy-reduction projects.

“These plants follow initiatives each day to ensure they operate with sustainability in mind and lead the way in our industry. They serve as models for others to follow with their repeated recognition for their efforts. We are very proud of the work they’ve done to achieve Energy Star certification this year by maintaining these high standards,” said Dr Hugo Bolio, executive vice president – cement operations and technology, Cemex USA.

The Clinchfield plant achieved Energy Star Certification for the 11th consecutive year with its recognition in 2017. Miami was recognized for the seventh consecutive year, and the Victorville Cement Plant received the certification for the sixth straight year. 2017 was the fifth time Brooksville earned the Energy Star Certification. Overall, carbon dioxide emissions per ton of cementitious product at Cemex plants have dropped 20 percent since 1990.

“Cemex is committed to sustainability across all our operations, and these plants illustrate how to adhere to environmental initiatives to preserve the communities where we live and work. We look forward to participating in this distinguished program each year and are honored to be recognized by the EPA and Energy Star,” Cemex USA president Ignacio Madridejos said.
