EPA Recognizes Titan America LLC, of Troutville, Virginia, Among Nation’s Most Energy–Efficient Manufacturing Facilities
PHILADELPHIA (April 5, 2022) — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized Titan America LLC, a cement manufacturing facility in Troutville, Virginia, as one of 93 U.S. manufacturing plants that earned the agency’s ENERGY STAR certification in 2021.
ENERGY STAR certified plants are verified to be among the most energy-efficient plants within their industries. Together, they prevented more than 5 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions from the industrial sector, which is responsible for nearly a third of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
“Companies like Titan America are improving energy efficiency, confronting climate change and strengthening our economy,” said EPA Mid-Atlantic Regional Atlantic Regional Administrator Adam Ortiz. “Reducing energy consumption is a critical component of the transition to a zero-emissions future, while saving money and creating resiliency for businesses and our planet.”
Thanks to their superior energy performance over a single year, these plants avoided nearly 90 trillion Btus of energy consumption and prevented emissions equal to the annual energy use of nearly 650,000 American homes. Since the first plants were certified in 2006, ENERGY STAR certified plants have cumulatively saved manufacturers more than $7 billion on energy bills when compared to average-performing facilities. Energy efficiency cuts energy waste and is an essential action for achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 for both the United States and the sustainability of the manufacturing sector. Net zero is the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere.
