During STRABASA project phase I , new technologies for the cold storage of the asphaltic binder bitumen and the following re-liquefaction were developed. These patent-protected innovations were integrated into the middle-European logistics concept of a reference construction enterprise. 

During project phase II, the existing mass flows of the hot-liquid road construction material are modelled to identify optimal facility location alternatives for bitumen liquefaction plants. Furthermore, the required capacities at each location were quantified.
