BiELSo, Sustainable Construction

Icopal BiELSo, Sustainable Construction through virtually endless bitumen recycling

Icopal’s revolutionary BiELSO – Bitumen Endless Solutions – process allows virtually endless recycling of bitumen roofing, protecting scarce resources while delivering a high quality bituminous roofing product with all the benefits of the original material.

BiELSO also results in considerable savings in the energy and CO2 emissions resulting from the extraction, processing and transportation of raw materials, and as old roofs are no longer destined for landfill, it further improves the sustainability of the entire production chain.

The process BiELSo - Bitumen Endless Solutions - recycles existing bitumen roof coverings and turns them into premium quality bitumen for the production of new bitumen membranes. Icopal's BiELSo plant is the only one of its kind in the world.

The BiELSo process generates several environmental benefits:

  • Reduction of the amount of new bitumen required by the construction industry
  • Significant reduction of the energy required for oil extraction and processing
  • Old roof coverings no longer add to the land fill sites
