Two Tate & Lyle US plants awarded Energy Star Certification

Earlier in September, Tate & Lyle announced that its two corn wet mills in Loudon, Tennessee, and Lafayette South, Indiana, in the US had been awarded the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Energy Star certification. 

The two mills are the only corn refining plants in the US to earn this accolade, having met strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.  

“We are thrilled to receive this certification for the fifth and seventh consecutive years for our Loudon and Lafayette South plants, respectively,” said Nick Waibel, Global Energy Lead at Tate & Lyle. 

“Achieving this honor in the first year is quite an achievement but to maintain such high standards over so many years reflects the dedication and hard work of our operations team, especially our technicians who are committed to running these mills as efficiently as possible.”
