The U.S. market utilizes in excess of thirty million tons of paving asphalt per year.
Venro personnel are active in helping the U.S. procure this massive amount of asphalt through its established international networks. Through affiliations and joint venture partners, Venro maintains an active presence in marketing asphalt and asphalt specialty products (undercoatings, paints, sealants, etc), including polymer modified asphalt. In the U.S., there are no less than 3,600 governmental agencies (national, state, county, etc) that annually procure asphalt requirements through their individual and separate purchasing departments.
By participating in on-going presentations and test strips, Venro anticipates transacting asphalt business in thirty eight of the fifty states during 1992.

In 1990, Venro entered into an exclusive U.S. agreement with Trinidad to market its Trinidad Lake Asphalt (TLA) from the historically renowned Pitch Lake. Since the middle of last century, more than seven and half million tons of asphalt have been removed fron the lake. Undoutedly the largest consistent deposit of natural asphalt int he world, TLA is internationally acclaimed for its high percentage (twenty three percent) of asphaltic resins and its fine mineral matter content.
The TLA resins are up to six times higher than the best refinery produced asphalt alternative, which allows for denser construction of asphaltic pavements and higher resistance against agin and deformation. Addicionally, the mineral matter suspended in the asphalt makes TLA behave like a very stiff asphalt (similar to a roofing asphalt). TLA has achieved a proven history of performance in its applications, and is accorded high respectability by knowledgeable end-users, which include New York's Kennedy and La Guardia airports, the George Washington Bridge, and the German Autobahn systems
