Colours and pigments:
preventing the use of products containing heavy metals
preference for organic products to prevent bituminous mixes stick onto vehicle decks
lowering the production temperatures of asphalt mixes and gradual restoration of paver with succion system
cooperation in development of sustainable chemicals.
