The durability of bitumen is the focus for a ground-breaking collaboration between Nynas and the French road construction specialist Colas. Rheological testing of age induced cracking takes centre stage
Rafael Renaudeau is appointed Vice President Nynas Bitumen and member of the Nynas Group Executive Committee. He will lead a newly formed organisation to cover all bitumen market areas where Nynas is located. This is a step to further strengthen Nynas position as the true bitumen specialist.
Nynas is playing an important role in the transition to electric vehicles, as a supplier to the automotive industry and a producer of high-performance oils needed to power tomorrow’s electrical infrastructure.
In a recently published white paper, Nynas outlines benefits and carbon footprint calculations for an upcoming range of binders incorporating biogenic material. The new product range, which will contribute to lowering the carbon footprint of a road will be launched during the autumn 2021.
The environmental impact of tyres comes mainly from their usage, but also to quite some extent from the raw materials. Making more environmentally friendly tyres thus requires using more renewable and recyclable material.
