The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized NRMCA Producer member CalPortland Company with a 2014 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year designation for its efforts in energy use management. The company will be recognized in an EPA ceremony in Washington, DC, on April 29. CalPortland has been an ENERGY STAR partner since 1996; 2013 accomplishments include:
• Reducing energy intensity by nearly two-percent compared to 2012, resulting in 0.13 trillion Btu in savings. This amounts to a reduction of 12,586 metric tons of CO2. Cumulative reductions in energy intensity of nearly 14 percent since 2005 have saved more than $52 million.
• Conducting an in-depth study of natural gas fuel use in on/off road vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; a pilot project is planned for an asphalt plant.
• Completing a large gas conditioning tower project at the Mojave Cement Plant reducing energy consumption by 15.7 million kWh per year and producing an annual savings of $1.25 million.

ENERGY STAR was introduced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased energy efficiency. Today, ENERGY STAR offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy, money and help protect the environment for future generations. 16,000 organizations are ENERGY STAR partners committed to improving the energy efficiency of products, homes, and buildings.
