Our production and supply network

Nynas production and supply network is strategically placed to ensure that our customers receive the products they need, when they need them.

Our long-lasting, high performance specialty products are designed to meet customers’ stringent requirements as they transition into new, more sustainable solutions within energy, infrastructure, and other segments. Our production and distribution activities are ideally situated to support customers on this path.

We rigorously hydrotreat our distillates to remove sulphur and nitrogen while also reducing aromatic content. The result is a very clean product that meets stringent demands in terms of function and health properties and is ideal for many customer applications. We produce bitumen from straight-run distillation for consistent product quality.

To serve our customers, our supply network in Europe and other selected markets ensures customers prompt and reliable deliveries. Through our sales and technical network, we ensure close customer cooperation and support for a wide variety of activities from technical support to collaboration in product development.

Nynas presence outside Europe

Production site Nynäshamn, Sweden

The site was established in 1928 in Nynäshamn, close to Stockholm. Here all Nynas product categories are manufactured for the Nordic market and for export. The production site has played a key role in Nynas’ focus on specialty products. In the shift between the 80s and 90s significant investments were made to increase bitumen capacity and advance the production of naphthenic specialty products. Investments have since then continued with a focus on quality, reliability and sustainability.

  • The largest production site in the Nynas Group.
  • The largest supplier of bitumen for roads in Sweden and the Nordic countries.
  • One of the largest producers of naphthenic specialty products in the world.
  • In 2004, the production site became the first of its kind in the world to run mainly on biomass, as all steam is generated by a cogeneration plant fueled by wood chips and other biomaterial.

 

Production site Gothenburg, Sweden

The site produces bitumen for the Nordic market. It was established in 1956 close to the Gothenburg harbour, in western Sweden. The production unit is kept up to date through strategic investments focusing on product quality and sustainability. Recent investments in new gas heaters have resulted in major emission reductions.

  • The site is focused on the production of bitumen and specialty products such as polymer modified bitumen, bitumen emulsions and oxidised bitumen.
  • The process to modify bitumen with polymers aims at making the binder more flexible at low temperatures, necessary for long lasting pavements for demanding conditions.

Production site, Eastham, UK

The site is operated as a 50/50 joint venture between Nynas and Shell. It is located on the River Mersey in north-western England.

  • The site produces bitumen for the UK market.
  • At the site, Nynas operates an upgrading plant (Special Products Plant or SPP) producing polymer modified binders and emulsions.
