For the 11th consecutive year, CEMEX USA’s Miami cement plant received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star certification for ongoing energy efficiency and sustainability efforts.
Over the past decade, employees at the plant have continued to follow EPA Energy Star guidelines, utilizing energy conservation technologies and processes aimed at certification. To earn the achievement each year, operations at the Miami plant had to reach Energy Star Plant Energy Performance Indicators and rank in the top 25% of similar U.S. facilities.
“Sustainability and conservation are ingrained in our operations and our business, so we constantly seek opportunities to decrease our energy use and reduce environmental impacts,” said CEMEX USA President Jaime Muguiro. “Our team at our Miami cement plant is helping set the standard for our industry, demonstrating what can be possible, and we are proud of their ongoing environmental performance and commitment.”
The certification is the latest accolade for CEMEX USA from the EPA Energy Star Program. The company was recently named 2021 EPA Energy Star Partner of the Year for Sustained Excellence, marking the third consecutive year for the honor.
Since 2007, CEMEX USA cement plants have earned more than 50 Energy Star certifications. In addition, dozens of CEMEX USA cement terminals and ready-mix concrete operations have achieved the Energy Star Challenge for Industry.
