ENERGY STAR Ratings Now Available for Food Processing Plants

Manufacturing plants that make container and food items in the US can now earn EPA's ENERGY STAR for superior energy efficiency.

The new Energy Performance Indicators (EPIs) for flat and container glass manufacturing plants and juice and frozen fried potato processing plants are the first of their kind for these industries. The U.S. glass industry spends more than $2 billion annually on energy while the food processing sector spends nearly $7 billion per year.

Improving the energy efficiency of these industries by just 10% would save nearly $900 million in energy costs and more than 150 trillion btu while reducing greenhouse gas emissions equal to those from the electricity use of more than 1 million homes for a year.
