Solutions For...

Environmental Solutions
With our advanced technologies, we offer solutions designed to be less harmful to the environment – for lower odour, reduced mixing temperatures and lower emissions of CO2 and dust particles in asphalt production.
Car on a road

High performance bitumens designed to maximize resistance to permanent deformation and reduce fatigue of asphalt mixtures that are used in the most demanding locations.

Low Temperature Mixing
Lowering asphalt mixing temperatures can reduce plant and machinery costs while lowering emissions of CO2, dust and fumes.
Risk marketing
Shell, as one of the largest hydrocarbon trading companies in the world, has the expertise to introduce pricing mechanisms to help customers to effectively manage their costs. In times of volatile energy prices, we strive to provide fixed price choices aligned to your commercial needs.
Road Safety
Whether through high-visibility coloured asphalt for cycle paths and traffic zones, or through cost effective solutions for paving rural roads in developing countries, we offer solutions to greatly improve the safety of road networks.
Spray Reduction
In wet conditions, spray from fast-moving vehicles can present a hazard for drivers. Porous asphalt allows rain water to drain through.
Sustainable Development
At Shell Bitumen we aim to deliver pavement solutions designed to help reduce your business’s impact on the environment and to help improve the quality of life for those living in both the developing and developed world.
