Safety

Observe, think and act

In order for all employees to go home from work every day without injuries, each individual must assume personal responsibility. Bitumen Matters visited the Special Products Plant (SPP) at the Nynas refinery in Eastham.

Sustainable Development

Effective solution for reduced maintenance

All municipalities have at least one section of road that constantly requires maintenance, surfaces that can never be satisfactorily repaired and are always on the waiting list for new measures. One such example is the junction of Pilsworth Road and Moss Hall Road in the English town of Rochdale.

A dynamic 90-year-old

In October 1928 the S/S British Earl delivered the very first cargo of crude oil for the newly-built refinery in Nynäshamn, Sweden. The history of Nynas could start to unfold. Research and development was a strong driving force for the business from the very outset. Among other things, Nynas was among the first in Europe to manufacture petrol with a high octane level. The global energy crisis in the mid-1970s resulted in a transition from a small traditional Swedish oil company into an international player focused on special products. Nynas is now one of Europe’s leading bitumen suppliers, and is also a world leader in the field of naphthenic specialty oils.
