Constellium announced that its Bowling Green in Kentucky facility has been recognized as an exemplary environmental steward by the Tennessee Valley Authority. Constellium’s Bowling Green plant produces flat rolled aluminium Auto Body Sheet products for the growing automotive market in North America and has a capacity of 100,000 tonnes annually. The TVA recognizes local businesses that help make the region cleaner and greener, and Constellium Bowling Green received two awards for “Lowest Carbon Emissions” and “Most Improved Carbon Emissions” based on its 2019 power consumption.
Since launching in 2016, the plant has made special efforts to reduce the amount of power it uses each day. Adjustments made to the CALP line, wastewater treatment facility and positive air pressure system managed to significantly reduce the plant’s power consumption.
