The GCC Pueblo Plant in Colorado has again been honored with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star certification for its exceptional energy efficiency. 

This marks the sixth consecutive year of recognition for the plant, underscoring its steadfast dedication to energy efficiency and emissions reduction. 

“Energy Star certification underscores GCC’s position among the top 25% of cement plants nationwide in terms of energy performance. Our unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship and operational enhancements geared towards efficient energy utilization has enabled us to achieve this milestone,” said Ron Henley, president of GCC’s U.S. Division.

GCC has significantly enhanced its energy performance through strategic energy management initiatives implemented across the organization. Approximately 25% of alternative fuels have been seamlessly integrated at the Pueblo Plant while maintaining exemplary thermal efficiency standards. This steadfast commitment to sustainability and operational innovation is evident throughout its processes. 

Separately, GCC’s Rapid City Plant in South Dakota has also earned the Energy Star certification for the fourth consecutive year, placing GCC among a select group of only 11 certified cement plants nationwide.
