RMP - General Chemical West Corporation - Richmond Works

Richmond, CA


General Chemical West's Richmond Works is located immediately adjacent to the Chevron Richmond Refinery, one-half mile north of Interstate 580 and Cutting Blvd., on Castro St. in Richmond, CA and occupies approximately 40 acres. The Chevron Refinery to the north and west, Chevron Chemical to the east, and Santa Fe Rail-yard to the south borders it. The property occupied by Richmond Works is an industrial use area.

General Chemical West's Richmond Works began operation in 1944 to serve the neighboring Standard Oil of California (now Chevron) refinery. This relationship still exists; Chevron uses fresh acid as an alkylation catalyst and ships the spent acid back to General Chemical West via pipeline for regeneration.
