Build roads with plastic waste!

An engineer has figured out how to take plastic waste and use it in road construction and repair. Watch the short video at this link.

British engineer, Toby McCartney, has developed a way to use waste plastic as a binding agent in asphalt, replacing most of the conventional bitumen, an oil product. His method reduces plastic waste, decreases the need for oil, and creates tougher, longer-lasting roads.
