Bitumen Matters No. 2 2021


Golden standard for the Slussen Bridge

The pavement system for a new bridge includes both asphalt and waterproofing. This makes major demands of quality awareness and the ability to coordinate different technologies.

Some other highlights in this issue of Bitumen Matters:

A new refinery landscape

The overall impact of IMO 2020, Covid-19 and the closure of outdated refineries has increased the benefit of bitumen expertise and specialisation. The question is who will produce bitumen in the future?

Nynas dedicated Bitumen Western Europe team, with a focus on customer relations, logistics and sales, is growing!

The latest additions are Carsten Meyer, Sales Manager, and Yasemin Hansen, Technical Sales Manager. “I’m really looking forward to the year ahead. We have secured long-term supplies of feedstocks and the 2021 season is looking really good.”
