Combining over half a century of experience across five continents throughout the asphalt construction value chain
The B2SQUARE team was borne out of a combined vision to produce high quality bitumen of targeted specification on demand from existing feedstocks. The Team first collaborated together to develop and successfully implement the Technix Bitumen Reactor within SprayPave in South Africa.
The formation of B2SQUARE is the culmination of that shared vision and approach to provide tailor made bitumen, aligned to current sustainability initiatives. Through a partnership between ALBR3CHT Supply Concepts GmbH and APS Engineering Solutions with Ventraco, B2SQUARE provides Instant Bitumen to the asphalt, roofing and membrane industries.
