Nynas is continually developing bitumen and its functional performance in a wide variety of applications. Their long-standing focus on bitumen has earned them the reputation of being the “bitumen specialists” – and that’s something they are very proud of.

Nynas has isolated a number of trends that are, or soon will be, affecting the way the bitumen industry does business. One of the immediate effects of these trends is that more and more of their customers are now seeking long-term, cost-effective solutions that are based on functional needs. These needs require bitumen that meets varying demands of performance. In close cooperation with their customers they have realigned their products to best meet these challenges. The result is their Performance Programme. At Nynas, this is what they call – Taking oil further.
