What is Bitumen?

Bitumen is a mixture of dense, sticky, viscous organic liquids, mainly composed of poly-cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, naturally occurring or obtained by crude oil distillation.

One of the easiest ways to understand bitumen is to compare it to its cousin, conventional crude oil. Whereas conventional crude oil flows freely, bitumen does not. At room temperature it looks like cold molasses, and must be either heated or diluted before it flows. Currently most of the roads globally are paved with bitumen. Today the world’s demand for bitumen accounts for more than 100 million tons per year which is approximately 700 million barrels of bitumen consumed annually.
