In the end of April 2016 a bitumen emulsion production commissioning ceremony was held in Zimbabwe.
This event was so important that the minister of transport and infrastructure, Mr. Yorama Gumbo, attended it personally. The base of the new production line is a UVB-1 unit produced by GlobeCore. The plant will produce up to 10 tons of bitumen emulsion per hour. The total estimated project cost is 500 thousand US dollars.
Application of high quality bitumen emulsion is reduces repair and maintenance expenses of asphalt-concrete pavements and solves the problem of new roads construction.
With the commissioning of this plant, Zimbabwe can now export bitumen emulsion to neighbouring countries and create 150 new jobs.
