A company in India has found an innovative solution to plastic garbage.
Ahmed Khan’s company in Bangalore, is trying to use recycled plastic to solve two of India’s biggest problems – crumbling roads and overflowing landfills.
So far, Mr. Khan’s company has built more than 745 miles of road using 3500 tons of plastic waste, mainly in Bangalore’s technology and outsourcing hub. The plastic is mixed with asphalt to form a compound called polymerized bitumen. This lengthens the lifespan of the road, making it more able to withstand everyday wear and tear better.
