Alamo Cement Company and Maryneal Plant Earn 2023 PCA Energy and Environment Awards

Buzzi Unicem USA proudly announces two of our facilities as recipients of the industry’s prestigious awards from Portland Cement Association.

The Alamo Cement Company received the Energy Efficiency Award for their Solar Plant Project. As the largest customer owned solar plant in the local energy service provider area, the farm has the potential to contribute 15% of the total power usage at the plant.

Buzzi Unicem USA’s Maryneal Plant was honored with the Outreach Award, for their devoted service to the community. Their outstanding commitment to projects include: the revitalization and remodel of the Maryneal Community Center, participation in the environmental education program, known as Kids on the Land, and donation of machinery, tooling and training to Sweetwater High School.

The PCA Energy and Environment Awards recognize companies that have implemented outstanding environmental practices and have forged exemplary relationships with communities where their cement plants are located. All of the award winners will be recognized during a luncheon at the PCA Fall Committee and Council Meetings, taking place in October in Nashville, TN.
