By mixing recycled plastic bottles with chewed up asphalt, the new process means authorities could repave a road, in situ, without adding bitumen, still have a road which lasts longer than the original road and do it all for lower emissions!

We have a massive amount of polyethylene plastic now that China is not taking it. Great to discover this way to use it in recycling roads!

I think it's a good idea. First of all, plastic pollution is very serious, and second of all, plastic is hard to degrade. I've seen a lot of sea creatures with plastic products in their stomachs, in their stomachs, and it's very damaging to the environment. So if you can use plastic to make roads. It can not only reduce environmental pollution, but also make people's life convenient.
