Dow joins Eurobitume and strengthens the voice of the bitumen industry in Europe

HORGEN, Switzerland – March 15, 2021 – Eurobitume, the voice of the bitumen industry in Europe, has been strengthened by Dow, a leading global materials science company, joining the Association.

Eurobitume’s work to promote the efficient, effective and safe use of bitumen in road construction, industrial and building projects, will offer important input to the commitment of Dow to the advancement of circular solutions for more sustainable roads.

Dow is working in close cooperation with bitumen producers to develop polymer modified bitumen (PMB)-based technologies to further improve the performance of asphalt roads, enabling them to last longer and remain safer. Dow will actively support work within Eurobitume and other scientific and governmental institutions to continue to improve and raise standards for PMB technology.

Petko Krastev, EMEA Marketing Manager Infrastructure for Dow Packaging & Specialty Plastics, commented: “Eurobitume’s wealth of experience, support and technical research will be invaluable as Dow progresses its commitment to advance circular economy solutions in construction and road applications. We can’t tackle big societal issues like circularity and climate change by working alone. It requires collaboration and the exchange of ideas between industry, academia, NGOs and governments. We look forward to making progress in working with Eurobitume and with its support, strengthening our valuable relationships with key European stakeholders and industry experts”.

Eurobitume Director General Siobhan McKelvey commented: “I am delighted to welcome Dow into the Eurobitume family as an Associate Member and look forward to the additional expertise, insights and experiences they will bring”.
