Hovensa Will Sell Petroleum Coke Regardless

Dear Source:

In a recent letter, Ivan Butcher II made the inaccurate assertion that WAPA would buy petroleum coke from HOVENSA for the Alpine Energy Waste-to-Energy Plants that HOVENSA would otherwise pay other entities to take “off its hands.” In fact, there is a well established and competitive market for petroleum coke.

Alex A. Moorhead
