Low quality bitumen can catch on fire
Reports made to us of contained fire accidents in 2 Bitumen refineries using Fuel oil to produce low quality bitumen have emerged. In case, you are not aware, Fuel Oil also known as Mazut has no place in bitumen production. However, it’s known to be widely used by some bitumen suppliers. This low quality stockfeed is used to produce low quality bitumen which is not suitable for road construction and because fuel oil maybe added to it it can catch on fire.
We urge all bitumen buyers to be diligent before they place an order for bitumen. Some suppliers may also purchase bitumen unknowingly from a mixed bitumen producer and and become victims themselves.
