Valero has 61,500 barrels per day of asphalt production capacity in the United States. The company has seven asphalt-producing refineries making it the second-largest U.S. refiner of asphalt, the top recycled product in America.
Often referred to as the “bottom of the barrel,” it is easy to overlook asphalt as one of the many products derived from a barrel of crude oil. In reality, there are many more applications for asphalt than just paving. Asphalt can also be used for roofing, batteries, automotive parts, and other materials used for building and construction.
As the second-largest asphalt producer in the United States, Valero strives to be a reliable supplier offering a variety of different grades. In addition to performance-grade paving asphalt, Valero also offers quality roofing asphalt, specialty grade industrial asphalt and polymer modified asphalt.
Valero is a member of the Asphalt Institute, the National Asphalt Paving Association (NAPA), and numerous other state industry associations. For more education on asphalt including its different uses and applications, please visit the links provided below.
