Lehigh Hanson says four of its cement plants have earned the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Energy Star certification for 2018 for meeting energy efficiency performance levels.
According to Lehigh Hanson, this is the sixth consecutive year the Union Bridge (Maryland) plant has received Energy Star certification, the fifth consecutive year for the Leeds (Alabama) plant and the second consecutive year for the Redding (California) plant. Also, the Tehachapi (California) plant earned the award.
Jon Morrish, president and CEO of Lehigh Hanson, says: “Energy efficiency is a key aspect of Lehigh Hanson’s commitment to operating our manufacturing facilities in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. The operational efficiency and strict energy management at the Leeds, Union Bridge, Tehachapi and Redding cement plants are a reflection of the priority we place on sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint.”
Jean Lupinacci, chief, energy star commercial & 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, organizations are leading the way by making their facilities more energy efficient and earning EPA’s Energy Star certification.”
