EPA Energy Star Certification winning plants

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that Cemex, in Clinchfield, GA. is among 70 manufacturing plants nationally that have achieved Energy Star certification for their superior energy performance in 2015.

Together, these manufacturing plants saved a record amount of energy, cut their energy bills by $476 million, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than five million metric tons.

“Energy Star certified manufacturing plants are driving the kinds of efficiencies and innovations that keep our country strong,” said EPA administrator Gina McCarthy.

“They’re proving every day that businesses can save on energy, cut down on bills, and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions all at the same time.”

Since 2006, Energy Star has certified manufacturing plants that reach the top 25 percent of energy performance for their industries nationwide each year. Energy Star certified plants must have their energy performance independently verified.

Plants from the automotive, cement manufacturing, corn refining, food processing, glass manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and petroleum refining industries are among those that qualified in 2015.

Cement works, Argos, in Newberry, FL is one of nine plants that earned certification for the first time.
Throughout 2016, many Energy Star certified plants will be hosting events at their facilities to showcase their energy-saving strategies that are delivering top energy performance.
