PPG CANADA UNITS RECEIVE ENERGY AWARDS

 PPG CANADA UNITS RECEIVE ENERGY AWARDS
 MONTREAL, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Canadian Electrical


Association (CEA) today announced the Hawkesbury, Ontario, automotive glass plant of PPG Canada Inc. is the recipient of its national Energy Efficient Industrial Award for 1992.
 In addition, PPG Canada's chemicals facility at Beauharnois, Quebec, is one of six regional CEA award recipients.
 PPG Canada is a subsidiary of PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) of Pittsburgh, a global producer of glass, chemicals, coatings and fiber glass.
 The CEA award program recognizes outstanding, innovative electricity efficiencies that enhance competitiveness of Canadian industry and can be adapted by others, and underlines continuing high priority by Canada's utilities for demand management and resource conservation.
 At PPG Canada's Hawkesbury plant, which annually supplies about two million windshields to the automotive industry, energy demand was reduced 54 percent while production capacity was increased 35 percent. The company worked with Ontario Hydro to develop a concerted energy management program dealing with many aspects of operations.
 CEA said the Hawkesbury plant's national award recognizes application of sound management, engineering and technological principles to achieve outstanding energy efficiency gains.
 As a result of a reconstruction project to install advanced process technology, electrical energy consumption at PPG Canada's Beauharnois chlorine and caustic soda plant was reduced 35 percent per ton of chlorine produced. Although production capacity was increased 25 percent, peak electrical demand declined 18 percent from the former peak. Hydro-Quebec, which collaborated with PPG Canada in the project, noted substantial improvements in employee and environmental safety were also obtained.
 Other 1992 CEA regional Energy Efficient Industrial Award recipients are: MBB Mechanical Services, Springhill, Nova Scotia; Brunswick Mining and Smelting, Bathurst, New Brunswick; 3M Canada, Morden, Manitoba; SED Systems, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; and Albright and Wilson America, North Vancouver, British Columbia.
