Holcim plants receive Energy Star

Plants recognized for superior energy efficiency

By

Holcim (US) Inc., a subsidiary of Holcim Ltd. and manufacturer and supplier of cement and mineral components, announced that five of its plants earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR.

“Holcim’s receipt of this award for five of its plants is a testament to the commitment that our management team and employees have made to protect the environment,” said Filiberto Ruiz, president and CEO of Holcim (US). “Sustainability is a core component of Holcim’s corporate values and it is a priority at every plant and facility.”

The Holly Hill plant in Holly Hill, S.C., the Ste. Genevieve plant in Bloomsdale, Mo., and the Theodore plant in Theodore, Ala., are all receiving this award for the fourth time. The Devil’s Slide plant in Morgan, Utah, has earned its sixth consecutive award from the EPA and the Portland plant in Florence, Colo., has been honored for three consecutive years. The ENERGY STAR is the national symbol for protecting the environment through superior energy performance.

EPA’s national energy performance rating system provides a 1 to 100 scale that helps organizations assess how efficiently their facilities use energy relative to similar facilities nationwide. A cement plant that scores a rating of 75 or higher and meets all other official EPA requirements is eligible for the ENERGY STAR.
