The Estoril racetrack in Portugal has just been repaved, and our Company was chosen to provide the products to do it. Repsol’s special bituminous binders, developed with cutting-edge technology, have been applied to the track surface.
What impact do roadways have in terms of energy, materials, and the environment? How can we optimize their benefits and minimize negative conditions? In pursuit of how to address these concerns we’ve participated in a series of conferences on technical matters promoted by the Spanish Ministry of Public Works and Transport.
Our colleague Francisco Lucas was awarded the Road Medal of Honor from the Spanish Road Association (AEC) for his excellent work to raise awareness of new technologies used in asphalt road surfaces, an area he has been working on for almost 20 years and where he is known for his dedication and interest in more innovative and environmentally sustainable materials and processes.
With the slogan “The concept Asphalt 4.0 in response to the new challenges in mobility and sustainability,” ASEFMA brought together a number of the sector’s companies to discuss issues related to digital transformation throughout the entire surfacing process, from the project stage to production, transportation, and finally surfacing, as well as quality control and use.
The Ministry of the Economy, Industry, and Competitiveness has awarded funding to an R+D+i project from Repsol's Lubricants and Specialized Products Business through the Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) as part of the call for proposals for “Research and Development Projects in Cooperation.”
Mr. Jaime Halcón Villavicencio (Director of Repsol Asphalts), Mr. Ángel García Garay (Head of State Road Demarcation in Murcia for the MFO), and Mr. Antonio Navarro Mompean (Chairman of CTCON) opened the conference, which took place in three sessions coordinated by Mr. Francisco Lucas Ochoa (Head of Technical Support and Business Development of Repsol Asphalts).

The company Padecasa Obras y Servicios, S.A. has executed works with a double treatment of cold micro-agglomerate (MICROF5+MICROF8) in the slow lane of the M-50 ring road, k.p. 53, uphill, on a concrete surface, for the purpose of improving the skid resistance of said surface.
This year, a training cycle on cold micro-agglomerates began to be offered to road technicians of the Directorate-General for Roads of the Ministry of Public Works and technicians of the companies in charge of the conservation and maintenance of roads of said central authority.
In 2017, Firtec, a company belonging to the Sorigué Group, executed works spanning an area of approximately 27,000 m2 and using pigmented mixtures that employ synthetic binders that REPSOL markets under the Recofal brand.
On October 3rd, the Conference on "Sustainable asphalt solutions adapted to climate change for road surfaces with low-intensity traffic" was held in the assembly hall of the Board of Public Works and Environment of the Regional Government of Castilla y León. It was attended by 170 road technicians from both public agencies and the private sector.
On May 23rd, 2017, Repsol attended a conference dedicated to surfaces and grading of low-traffic volume roads which was organized by the Ministry of Public Works of the Provincial Government of Badajoz.
Between September and November 2015, repair work was performed on various runways of the Madrid Adolfo Suárez-Barajas Airport, specifically those identified as A18, A19, A20, M18, M19 and M20, corresponding to surface rehabilitation actions and in which Repsol has participated as supplier of the different binders used.
Recofal-brand synthetic binders, one of the special products developed by REPSOL, are on high demand for the building of pigmented infrastructures, as they provide differentiated advantages with respect to conventional bitumens, mainly in aesthetic terms.
Article 212 of the General Technical Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction Projects (PG-3) defines polymer-modified bitumens, in accordance with norm UNE-EN 12597 on Terminology, as: "hydrocarbonated binders whose rheological properties have been modified during their manufacture, through the use of one or more organic polymers. For the purposes of applying this article, organic or mineral fibers are not considered bitumen modifiers."
The paving sector, specifically that of bitumen mixtures, is becoming increasingly demanding and fulfilling its requirements and requests is increasingly challenging. Meeting these is chiefly dependent on the possibility of obtaining bitumen mixtures that will increase efficiency and make for lasting pavements.
In December 2015, Repsol Lubricants, Specialized Products, and Asphalts, obtained the first multisite certification of the group, which envisages the Rlesa joint certification at various facilities, in order to, among other activities, manufacture and store bitumen mixtures and bitumens for the Rábade, Cartagena, Gajano, Mangualde, and Azambuja plants; and modified bitumens for the Puertollano, Gajano, and Azumbuja plants.
