Three Buzzi Unicem USA Plants Receive ENERGY STAR certification
Buzzi Unicem USA recently announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded three of its U.S. cement manufacturing plants ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy performance. Buzzi’s plants in Chattanooga, Tennessee; Festus, Missouri; and Maryneal, Texas received the honor.
This marks the seventh consecutive year these plants have received the certification.
In order to qualify for ENERGY STAR® recognition, cement plants must score at least 75 on the Energy Performance Indicator, used by the EPA to measure energy efficiency. In addition, the plant must have a three-year history of environmental compliance.
The ENERGY STAR program is a joint initiative of the EPA and DOE that focuses on strategic energy management, and emphasizes the importance of demonstrating environmental leadership for future generations.
