– Canton plant recognized for protecting the environment –

Nissan North America’s facility in Canton, Miss., is the first vehicle assembly plant to receive the coveted 2009 ENERGY STAR® from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This is the fourth-consecutive year the Canton plant has received this distinguishing mark of energy performance that places the facility among the top 25 percent of auto assembly plants in the United States.

“It means something special when your company is connected with ENERGY STAR®,” said Dan Bednarzyk, vice president, Manufacturing-Canton. “That’s why we’re always proud to receive this award and will continually strive to look for new and beneficial ways to protect the environment and improve energy efficiency.”


As an ENERGY STAR® partner, Nissan has committed to three principal actions that include measuring and benchmarking energy performance; reducing the intensity of energy use at all facilities; and educating staff and the public about ENERGY STAR®.

Nissan’s ongoing energy efficiency practices at Canton include:

  • Engaging all employees in energy-management practices
  • Installation of variable-speed electric-motor drives that match motor loads to the duty required
  • Elimination of compressed air leaks
  • Reducing startup and shutdown time on process equipment
  • Improved controls for paint-process systems

“Receiving the ENERGY STAR® is a testament to the compatibility of improving our environment while enhancing the corporate bottom line,” said Jean Lupinacci, director, Commercial and Industrial Branch.

Nissan’s vehicle assembly plants in Smyrna, Tenn., and Canton, Miss., continue to receive ENERGY STAR® awards year-after-year. The plants, including Nissan’s powertrain assembly plant in Decherd, Tenn., have seen their energy efficiency improve by more than 30 percent, saving the company over $11.5 million per year.
