UAE to host Asia, Middle East’s bitumen, road construction conference

Tehran (ISNA) - On the 8th to 9th of January, the largest gathering of the Asia and Middle East’s bitumen and road construction is going to take place by Rex Fuels’ AME Conference 2020 in UAE.

More than 200 bitumen market players and suppliers will attend this two-day conference, in order to network, share experiences and meet potential business partners to grow their businesses.

This international conference covers many subjects related to bitumen including the growing concerns about the supply-demand mismatch, recycling bitumen and modifying it for safe and long lasting roads, and IMO 2020 marine fuel sulphur limits. This gathering aimed to stimulate the bitumen market and engage all the actors to resolve issues by taking appropriate actions.

As rapidly growing countries in Asia are developing their Road networks, Bridges and public Infrastructure to meet their growing market demands, the bitumen and the road construction industry is going to grow at the highest rate. There are, however, growing concerns about the supply-demand mismatch and capability to fulfil these demands.

In order to answer the challenge of creating sustainable roads, part of the conference will be allocated to the debate and comparison being made between Bitumen Roads (Flexible pavements) and Cement Roads (Rigid pavements). While most markets see Bitumen as environment-friendly, sustainable and an economically-viable product, few countries continue to prefer Rigid pavements.

There has also been a lot of Research and Development on Bitumen modification so as to make safe and long lasting Roads. There is also demand for recycling as Countries bring in new laws to protect the environment.

The implications of the IMO 2020 marine fuel sulphur limits brings uncertainty to everyone in the supply chain from refiners, trading firms, terminal operators and shipping firms.

The Conference program will help the participants address these industry challenges, find out about the new global demand centers, understand the new technologies and get to know what the future holds for the industry.

Pasargad Oil, Jey Oil, Infinity Galaxy as Exhibitors, Sebco, Kasra, Black Gold Refineries and many other key players of Bitumen Market in the Middle East will take a part in this international event.
