ABOUT BITUMEN & ASPHALT
Bitumen and asphalt are terms that are often used interchangeably; however, bitumen is the black oil product while asphalt is a combination of bitumen and aggregate stone. Bitumen is mainly produced from refining crude but also occurs naturally. It is a very heavy, viscous material, is highly resistant to water and to environmental factors and has to be stored and transported at high temperatures (150 C / 300 F).
Valt’s global trading operation distributes asphalt to customers worldwide and includes access to a global network of terminals operated by our Vitol partner.
