Environment & Safety

Environment & Safety

Environmentally Conscious.

AVAD Crates are leakage free. Zero product loss during transport, storage or re-liquefaction, equally eliminating environmental contamination.

AVAD PE-Bags fuse with the high-temperature bitumen, assuring zero product waste. The remaing packaging materials are re-usable, delivering waste-free bitumen, no longer leaving contaminated empty steel drums.

AVAD Smelter is highly energy efficient, liquefying 1 ton bitumen with 4 litres of Diesel fuel only.

Reduced AVAD Emissions

AVAD bitumen fume emissions are negligible due to the shortened smelter flap opening: 2min for 2.2T bitumen.

AVAD CO₂ emissions are kept at minimum level in line with the low fuel consumption.

AVAD noise emissions are kept well below hazardous levels: max. 60 dB during operation.

AVAD Bitumen Solutions offers a unique, clean and energy saving end-to-end process, an exemplary alternative to conventional bitumen distribution.

AVAD Work Safety

Bitumen is used at high temperatures (around 150℃) leading to potential hazards. Mitigating these hazards with prudent safety mechanisms, dangerous accidents and health risk can be reduced to a minimum.

  • AVAD instructs its customers for the safe use of bitumen.
  • AVAD strictly follows regulatory requirements and internal work safety regulations and continuously improves its HSSE & Q performance.
