High quality, reliable bitumen products are essential across a range of road, infrastructure and construction applications. But there’s more to it than that. You need a partner who’s going to work with you, meet your needs and address the issues that matter most to you – a partner that cares about the environment, and health and safety. And, a partner who can give you the technical support you need, when you need it. That partner is Total Bitumen.

Investing in expertise
Total is the world leader in bitumen R&D, with dedicated research centres in France, the UK, Germany and India. Each centre has extensive experience designing and developing bitumen products, as well as state-of-the-art testing facilities. Our goal is to meet the needs of bitumen users today, and in the future.
We take a collaborative approach to research, and we’re happy to work with customers, public and private organisations, and independent research bodies on new projects. Giving technical support to our customers, working alongside them to test and develop the products they need, and promoting good communication , collaboration and engagement– these are all essential elements in our culture of continuous improvement.
Sustainability through durability
Constant innovation helps us maintain our market leading position, but it also means we can develop more durable products that last longer. When we do that, we can help our customers improve their energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and operate more efficiently.
Our Azalt ECO2 and Syrelf ECO2 brands demonstrate this commitment to producing more sustainable bitumen products. Both can be mixed at temperatures 40°c lower than conventional products. This results in lower energy costs and less carbon emissions during manufacture, and it also means the asphalts cool faster so that roads can be opened sooner.
We have also developed a range of surface-dressing binders, including Emulsis. When applied at the correct intervention level it can effectively extend the life of the carriageway, improving its life cycle sustainability.
Meeting and exceeding HSEQ standards
Our organisation complies with all the most up-to-date health, safety, environment and quality standards. Total Bitumen has the latest accreditations in Environmental Management Quality Management and Occupational Health (see below).
We take our health and safety responsibility seriously throughout our supply chain too. For instance, all the delivery drivers with our logistics partner, Hoyer, hold current Eurobitume passports and are fully compliant with its code of practice.
As members of Eurobitume, the European industry body for bitumen producers, we promote the efficient and safe use of bitumen, recognise its role in environmental sustainability, and recognise the importance of health and safety in our industry , and your industry.
