Building Roads Sustainably
The Institute of Asphalt’s Annual Conference is an important event for the UK road industry. This year’s theme is sustainable development and Nynas will be there to talk about our new product range Nypol RE as well as other ways in which we contribute to reducing the climate impact of the asphalt sector.

Talking point: Road infrastructure in North-Western Europe
Even though many successful road projects have been completed in Western Europe in recent years, the durability and availability of the road infrastructure needs to be improved.
30 years in Tallinn
For three decades, Nynas has contributed to an increased understanding of bitumen quality and supported the development of Estonian road infrastructure.
Knowledge saves lives
Regular training is the basis of all safety work. Only then is it possible to act both quickly and correctly if an accident actually occurs.
The way forward for Wales
Over ten years in the making, the Welsh Government’s new surface course specification centres around stone mastic asphalt (SMA) and hopes to significantly increase the service life of the road surface materials.
Landing surface fit for presidents
Teaming up around tightly scheduled works to upgrade the runway taxiways and apron at Cornwall Newquay Airport, Aggregate Industries and Nynas had to overcome challenging logistical issues. A close working partnership between them saw the project safely landed on time.
Paving the way for asphalt 4.0
Digitalisation is making inroads in the asphalt industry. The latest Eurasphalt & Eurobitume (E&E) Congress was held virtually in June. It was a success, but the next E&E event will allow industry stakeholders to meet face-to-face.
Nynas UK announce their future plans for the bitumen business in the UK
Nynas UK today announce that they will be ending the partnership with Navigator Terminals at their Teesside depot at the end of the existing contract in December 2022.
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The overall impact of IMO 2020, Covid-19 and the closure of outdated refineries has increased the benefit of bitumen expertise and specialisation.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?
