Use of waste plastic in road carpeting is an emerging phenomenon in the world.
Every year we dump a massive 2.12 billion tons of waste. If all this waste was put on trucks they would go around the world 24 times. This stunning amount of waste is partly because 99 percent of the stuff we buy is trashed within 6 months.
In order to tackle this world-wide problem, it is important to create demand for recycled materials by diversifying markets and applications that can contribute to a global circular economy for plastics. Many countries are developing innovative strategies for efficient re-use of different types of plastic.
