Stocks in this article: TXI

DALLAS, Oct. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TXI Operations, LP, a subsidiary of Texas Industries, Inc. (NYSE:TXI) announced today that its Midlothian Cement Plant has been awarded the 2012 Energy Star ® certification for superior energy performance by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The award places the TXI Midlothian Cement Plant in an exceptional category of high-performing, energy efficient cement plants in the U.S., based on the EPA's strict energy efficiency performance levels through the National Energy Performance Rating System. 

Building on its previous Energy Star recognition, TXI's Midlothian Cement Plant has implemented the requirements outlined by the EPA for plant energy programs, including a detailed performance assessment along with an action plan that ultimately resulted in achieving this designation. "Energy efficiency is key to how we manage our business, and as stewards of the environment and our natural resources, we are committed to continuous improvement," stated Ronnie Pruitt, Vice President – Cement Operations at TXI. "TXI is pleased to accept EPA's Energy Star certification on behalf of our employees who have worked so hard to earn this award again." 

With the growth in worldwide demand for energy expected to accelerate in the future, making energy efficiency an integral part of TXI's operations through programs such as EPA's Energy Star designation will continue to be an essential goal. "Improving the energy efficiency of our nation's manufacturing facilities is critical to protecting our environment in an economically sustainable manner," said Jean Lupinacci, Chief, Energy Star Commercial & Industrial Branch. "From the plant floor to the board room, organizations such as TXI are leading the way by making their facilities more energy efficient and earning EPA's Energy Star." The Midlothian plant has long been a model of environmental efficiency through both innovative air pollution control technologies as well as innovative process efficiencies to manufacture one of the most widely-used building materials.
