Energy efficiency award
US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Titan America's Roanoke Cement Company in Virginia the Energy Star for the seventh consecutive time. The award is given to companies that meet the strict performance levels set by the EPA. "It is rewarding to know that small adjustments in air pressure, for example, can result in huge savings over the course of the year, and add up to a tangible difference," said Stephen Knox, Electrical Manager at the plant. "Energy savings benefits the company by reducing our energy costs while also contributing to environmental sustainability by reducing overall energy demand" he added. Energy Star was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.
