About Shell Bitumen

Since the late nineteenth century, demand for bitumen has been increasing – a demand Shell has helped to meet. Shell began major bitumen production in the UK in 1920 with the opening of the Shell Haven refinery. Today, we manufacture bitumen at refineries around the world and are one of the leaders in research into new bitumen and asphalt applications.
