Material-saving, resilient, long-lasting and easy to repair – the list of requirements to be met by the roads and streets of tomorrow is long. In order to offer comprehensive solutions for the production of asphalt and bitumen, BASF combines the development and marketing activities in the EMEA region in one central hub.
Road-based freight transport across Europe will continue to increase significantly in the future, sustainability is therefore a key issue when it comes to infrastructure. This is why BASF works on new solutions to meet customer needs such as longer durability and improved maintenance as well as energy and carbon-dioxide savings. Additives for bitumen and asphalt are instrumental in making road surfaces more effective and longer lasting. There are, however, great differences between one asphalt recipe and another. What matters therefore is to focus on the development of tailor-made, local solutions to meet customer requirements.
