Vertex Energy Inc.
Vertex Energy is a leader in the aggregation, recycling and processing of distressed hydrocarbon streams thereby reducing the United States' reliance on foreign crude oil. Our focus, as a participant in the alternative energy and environmentally friendly investment sectors, is on creating increased value in the products we manage and produce through a variety of strategies and technologies that facilitate the re-refining of used oil and off specification commercial chemical products into higher value commodities. By creating higher value products from distressed hydrocarbon streams, we are positioned to produce both financial and environmental benefits.
Vertex Energy is based in Houston, Texas with offices in Georgia and California. Our company provides services across the United States enabling the transporting, processing and re-refining of these distressed hydrocarbon based streams into viable commodity products that offset the United States' dependency on foreign crude oil in a safe and regulatory compliant manner.
