Lebec, CA 93243
The Lebec cenent plant was originaliy built in the early 1960s to provide cement used in the construction of portions of Interstate 5 and the Governor Edmund G. Brown California Aqueduct. In 1987 the plant was acquired by The Vicat Group and renamed National Cement Company of California (“National Cement”). From 1999 to 2001, National Cement completed major energy efficiency modernization to the raw grind, pyro-processing and cement lines.
National Cement has continuously worked to improve energy efficiency of its overall operations: both pyroprocessing and electrical consumption. Since the 2001 upgrade, with the assistance of its local utlity provider Southern California Edison (SCE), National Cement implemented energy savings projects that summed up to more then 8 GWh reduction per year, equating to a reduction of more than 7 millions pounds of CO2. These include:
The Lebec plant's continuous extensive participation in SCE Energy and Capacity programs ensures power relability for our community, defers the need to build new power generation plants and helps reduce greenhouse gas emmisions.
National Cement joined as an ENERGY STAR Partner in 1997. National Cement applied for and was certified with the ENERGY STAR plant label for the first time in 2010.
