Hydrogen sulphide is a common component of many petroleum products, including those used in asphalt for construction of roadways. Baker Hughes’ SULFIX technology reduces exposure to hydrogen sulphide throughout the asphalt supply chain, from the refinery to the paving process.

Jerry Basconi, vice president of Baker Petrolite said: “Working together with asphalt producers, Baker Hughes can help them stay on track with their health, safety and environmental programmes. SULFIX products for asphalt can help reduce levels of hydrogen sulphide, improving employee safety and environmental compliance.”
