Based in San Ramon, Calif., Chevron Products Co. is one of the largest refiners and marketers of petroleum products in the United States. With six refineries and 7,900 retail outlets, it serves customers in 29 states primarily in the West, Southwest and South. It is also one of the top three asphalt sellers in the nation, a product supplied by two additional asphalt refineries in Willbridge, Ore., and Perth Amboy, N.J.
Chevron Product's three largest refineries in Pascagoula, Miss. and the California cities of Richmond and El Segundo are complex and highly "efficient" facilities, each a strong competitor in its respective region. The West Coast refineries are configured to reliably produce large volumes of high-value gasoline and diesel fuels designed to meet the air "quality" needs of the California market. The company's three smaller refineries on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, in El Paso, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah are positioned to take advantage of growing niche markets.
Chevron leads the way in:
- Hazardous air pollutants benzene, tetrachloroethylene and 1,2-dibromoethane;
- Toxic releases to the environment - that means you - in all reporting sectors;
- Keeping the Bay Area well above Clean Air Act standards by releasing more nitrogen oxides and more volatile organic compounds than even the Tosco refinery, the Shell refinery, the Dupont chemical plant, or the Pittsburg generator station; and
- Preferentially targeting people of color, low income families, families below poverty, kids below poverty, non-highschool graduates, working class people, and homeowners informe resumido en español.
