EPA awards Energy Star certification to 95 manufacturing plants

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded the Energy Star certification to 95 manufacturing plants owned by companies such as Cemex and Calportland.

The EPA says these plants saved $520 million on energy bills and nearly 100 trillion British thermal units of energy compared to average facilities.

These plants also significantly reduced air pollution by avoiding more than 6 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, the agency adds.

Anne Idsal, EPA principal deputy assistant administrator for air and radiation, says: “The magnitude of these plants’ savings indicates that manufacturers in the United States have a lot to gain by investing in energy efficiency. Energy management is a win/win: saving money for manufacturers and protecting our environment.”

Plants from the automotive, baking, cement, corn refining, food processing, glass manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, fertilizer manufacturing, and petroleum refining sectors are among those that qualified for certification in 2019.
