Waste plastic for sturdier roads

With a ban on plastic bags enforced in New Delhi, the largest ever project to utilize plastic is underway.

The Public Works Department, with the Central Road Research Institute (CRRI), is working on a project to lay roads made from a plastic-inclusive hot mix. And helping them in the project is MBA aspirant Sanket Gupta who procures non-recyclable plastic bags from local kabaadis and supply them for the project. Gupta is Delhi’s only approved plastic waste modifier; CRRI holds the patent for the technology of constructing ‘plastic roads’.
