Tar sands 'dirty oil' could soon be coming to the UK

According to the report, “Tar Sands coming to Town”, Valero purchased the Pembroke refinery in August 2011[3] as part of its plans to increase diesel exports to Europe, particularly the UK and Ireland. The company plans for a rapidly growing portion of this diesel to originate from the tar sands in Alberta, Canada.
