Five CEMEX USA Cement Plants Earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR® Certification

Cement plants in Florida, California, Ohio and Georgia Recognized for Superior Energy Efficiency

HOUSTON – July 31, 2012

CEMEX USA announced today that five of its cement manufacturing plants earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR® certification. The recognition of CEMEX USA’s plants in Brooksville, Fla., Victorville, Ca., Fairborn, Ohio, Miami, Fla., and Clinchfield, Ga., demonstrates CEMEX’s superior performance in energy efficiency. 2012 marks the sixth consecutive year of certification for the Clinchfield plant, an achievement realized by only one other cement plant in the U.S. This is the second consecutive certification for the Miami plant, and the first for the Brooksville, Victorville and Fairborn plants.

All of the recognized plants improved their energy performance using the ENERGY STAR guidelines for Energy Management developed by the EPA. Throughout the year, these plants invested in energy conservation and monitoring technologies, and placed among the nation’s top 25 percent of cement plants with regards to energy performance. The plants also participated in Utility Demand Response and Load Shedding programs to help prevent blackouts and boost local grid stabilization in cases of emergency.

“CEMEX is honored to be recognized by the EPA as a leader in energy management,” said Karl Watson, Jr., President of CEMEX USA. “With the guidance of ENERGY STAR, CEMEX has successfully demonstrated an ongoing commitment to sustainability and upheld an excellent record as a champion of energy efficiency.”

The ENERGY STAR program is an EPA initiative that focuses on strategic energy management and emphasizes the importance of demonstrating environmental leadership for future generations.
