Three Lehigh Hanson cement plants have earned the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star certification for 2015.
Lehigh cement plants in Leeds (AL), Union Bridge (MD) and Glens Falls (NY) perform within the top 25% of cement plants nationwide for energy efficiency and meet the EPA’s strict energy efficiency performance levels.
This is the third-consecutive year the Union Bridge plant has received Energy Star certification and the second-consecutive year for the Leeds and Glens Falls plants. “Energy efficiency is a key aspect of Lehigh Hanson’s commitment to operating our manufacturing facilities in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner,” said Jon Morrish, president, Lehigh.
“The operational efficiency and strict energy management at the Leeds, Union Bridge and Glens Falls cement plants are a reflection of the priority we place on sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint.” “Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s industrial facilities is critical to protecting our environment,” said Jean Lupinacci, chief of Energy Star Commercial & Industrial Branch.
“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.”
