Roads Using Plastic

 — #Waste Plastic#Environment#Construction

Problem

Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects and particles (e.g. plastic bottles, bags and microbeads) in the Earth's environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans. Plastics that act as pollutants are categorized into micro-, meso-, or macro debris, based on size. Plastics are inexpensive and durable, and as a result levels of plastic production by humans are high. However, the chemical structure of most plastics renders them resistant to many natural processes of degradation and as a result they are slow to degrade. Together, these two factors have led to a high prominence of plastic pollution in the environment.


Solution

By considering these conditions, I tried to find the solution on this pollution. I used this plastic waste in road construction with the proper mixture with bitumen. This procedure is tested and certified by Nashik Municipal Corporation and Ashoka Constructions. This model shows good results on the Road Characteristics.


I received an ‘Inspire Scholarship’ for this innovation.


This have following features:

  • Road will become Waterproof
  • Saves cost as Bitumen requirement will reduces
  • Reduces environment pollution
  • Increases life of Road
  • Easy Process

I participated in Inspire Science Exhibitions with this Plastic Road and was appreciated by many.
