CEMEX USA is pleased to announce that five of its cement manufacturing plants have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR® certification. The recognition of CEMEX USA’s plants in Brooksville, Fla., Miami, Fla., Clinchfield, Ga., Fairborn, Ohio, and Victorville, Ca., demonstrates that these facilities perform among the top 25 percent of similar U.S. facilities for energy conservation. 2013 marks the seventh consecutive year of certification for the Clinchfield plant, an achievement realized by only one other cement plant in the U.S., the third consecutive certification for the Miami plant, and the second for the Brooksville, Victorville and Fairborn plants.
Throughout the year, all of the recognized plants put into practice the energy efficiency principles established by the ENERGY STAR® Guidelines for Energy Management developed by EPA. These plants implemented energy conservation and monitoring technologies, promoted energy efficiency awareness among employees, and completed energy reduction projects.
