Helping to reduce your environmental impact

At Shell Bitumen, we have designed solutions formulated to help reduce your business’ impact on the environment during projects. For example, our Shell Low Temperature binders require lower mixing and paving temperatures compared to conventional hot mix asphalt, helping to reduce energy consumption and thereby its associated CO2 emissions during the mixing and paving heating process.

Investing in the future

We also know that tomorrow brings new energy challenges. That’s why we invest in initiatives like Make The Future, which harnesses the power of people’s collective ingenuity to solve future energy challenges. From glow-in-the-dark motorway lanes, to surfaces that take harmful substances out of the air, our products could offer an untapped opportunity for future energy innovation.
