The event was held on January 24th at the West Virginia Cultural Center on the Capitol grounds in Charleston. Constellium Senior Environmental Engineer, Gary Roark; Reliability and Engineering Manager, Vic Rose; and Ravenswood plant CEO, Kyle Lorentzen, were on hand to receive the award.

A number of years ago, Constellium Ravenswood plant went through an energy audit conducted by West Virginia University, in participation with the IOF program and the US Department of Energy. The audit identified a number of actions, many of which the plant implemented, allowing it to drastically cut its energy costs and to use its various sources of energy more efficiently.
