TXI's Midlothian Cement Plant has been awarded the 2010 Energy Star certification for superior energy performance by the Environmental Protection Agency. The award places the TXI Midlothian cement plant in the category of high-performing, energy-efficient cement plants, based on the EPA's National Energy Performance Rating System.
TXI's Midlothian plant followed EPA plant-energy program requirements, including a detailed performance assessment along with an action plan that ultimately resulted in achieving Energy Star designation.
"Energy efficiency is a major strategic theme as we look into the future for the Midlothian plant, and we recognize the importance of continuous improvement in this area," says TXI Vice President of Cement J. Lynn Davis. "Achieving this designation is significant because our employees work hard every day to conserve energy and produce cement as efficiently as possible."
With the growth in global demand for energy expected to rise significantly over the coming years, incorporating energy efficiency into TXI's operations through programs such as EPA's Energy Star designation will continue to be an essential goal. The Midlothian plant has long been a model of environmental efficiency through use of innovative air pollution control technologies and other process efficiencies to manufacture one of the most widely used and critical building materials.
