Detroit Diesel recognized for reducing energy use

Detroit Diesel’s Engine Manufacturing Center in Redford, Mich., is one of the first manufacturing plants to reduce energy use in a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency challenge, the diesel engine maker announced.

The engine maker met goals for reducing its so-called energy intensity by 17 percent, exceeding the federal agency’s reduction goal by 7 percent. Tasks in the agency’s Energy Star challenge include lowering and tracking energy use and verifying subsequent savings.

The Redford, Mich.-based manufacturer was also honored for outstanding achievement at a statewide professional engineering conference. The award recognizes the Michigan-based industrial company that has made the most contributions in the area of energy conservation, said a company spokeswoman.
