Valero Renewables has been holding similar 10th anniversary gatherings and special remembrances this year at its ethanol operations across the Midwest.
Valero Energy Corporation, through its Valero Renewable Fuels subsidiary, became the first traditional petroleum refiner to enter large-scale ethanol production with the purchase of seven high-quality plants from VeraSun Energy Corp. in 2009. Today, Valero Renewables operates 14 ethanol plants across eight states with total capacity of 1.73 billion gallons per year, making it one of the nation’s largest producers.
