At the 21st Annual Responsible Care Conference and Expo this week, the American Chemistry Council honored 19 of its member companies for implementing energy-efficiency improvements in 2011. ACC presented a total of 67 awards to these companies, 16 of which were deemed programs of "Exceptional Merit."
The Responsible Care Energy Efficiency Awards program is among ACC's many ongoing initiatives to improve energy efficiency. In 2011, the total annual energy savings achieved by the winning projects was 16.9 trillion BTUs -- enough to power all the homes in a city the size of Norfolk, Va., for one year.
