Nynas expertise highlighted

This year’s E&E Congress will feature presentations of a large number of technical articles, representing top-level expertise in current bitumen and asphalt technology. Experts from Nynas have contributed to several of these, in some cases as lead author. Dr Anna Steneholm, Group Specialist Toxicology, and Dr Ian Lancaster, UK Technical Manager, have also been selected to give oral presentations.

Anna’s presentation shows how to quantify the particles in bitumen fumes in terms of size, quantity and concentration, while Ian will focus on the morphology in polymer modified bitumen with the aid of fluorescence and optical microscopy.

In addition to these two presentations, other experts from Nynas will be taking part in the poster session including Hilde Soenen, Xiaohu Lu, Jenny-Ann Östlund, Mike Lancaster, Dennis Day and Jukka Laitinen.

That implies new structures, as well as maintenance interventions, must be effectively designed and the installation must truly reflect that design.
