Environmental Law Class (Fall 2011) Tours Valero Energy's
Refinery in Houston, Texas

Valero visit

On Friday, Sept. 30, 2011, UHLC Environmental Law students toured Valero Energy Corporation's refinery at the Houston Ship Channel. The tour provided an excellent opportunity for students to learn the basics of petroleum refining, observe first-hand how enviornmental laws and regulations affect facilities, and participate in an in-depth discussion of the key environmental challenges and opportunities for refineries.

We thank Valero and the staff of the Houston refinery for making this unique educational experience possible.
