September 17, 2021
Chemtrade’s Richmond facility, located in Richmond, California joined the Chemtrade family in 2014. The Chemtrade Richmond facility works with a pipeline-connected petroleum refinery by regenerating the refinery’s spent acid. It produces regen acid by taking “spent acid” (which is sulphuric acid that has been diluted and contaminated during the production of alkylate by petroleum refineries) and processing it to produce fresh sulphuric acid, referred to as “regen” acid which is then returned to the refinery. Refineries generally use fresh sulphuric acid as a catalyst in their process to produce a product that is a component of blended gasoline, with beneficial octane properties. The close-knit team of employees works hand in hand under the leadership of Mike Shepherd, Plant Manager. The Chemtrade Richmond facility is an active member of the community, supporting local initiatives such as local softball leagues, Christmas toy drives, and regular donations towards Hazardous Materials Training with the local Richmond Fire Department. #community #ChemtrdeLife #GettoknowChemtrade

Regen Acid – H2SO4 #Chemtrade provides Sulphuric Acid regeneration (“regen”) services for our refining and chemical production customers who generate spent acid. Spent acid is Sulphuric Acid that has been modified (diluted, contaminated, etc.) while being used as a catalyst in a manufacturing process. Chemtrade efficiently reprocesses these spent acids into Commercial Grade Sulphuric Acid for reuse by the same customers or resale as Merchant Acid. Sulphuric Acid regeneration represents an important element of Chemtrade’s core North American product and service offering. Chemtrade’s regen acid is Responsible Care® and Quality Management Certified. Chemtrade has four regeneration acid facilities across the USA - Anacortes, WA, Beaumont, TX, Richmond, CA, Riverton, WY, Toledo, OH. Acid regeneration is a cost-effective and sustainable way to produce fresh acid with a lesser impact on the environment. #manufacturing #chemical #environment #sustainable #acidregenation #regen #gettoknowchemtrade #sulphuricacid

    I had 1 interview. It was not really difficult. It was a good place to work and very family oriented. We had lots of company parties especially around holidays. Training was about 1 week. Everyone was supportive.
