Yes, it is possible to make roads using plastic waste. Currently, several parts of rural India are using plastic waste to construct roads.

Rajagopalan Vasudevan, an Indian scientist, has developed an innovative method that uses plastic waste to make roads. Roads made with this innovative method tend to be :

  • Cheaper
  • More Durable
  • More Resistant to damages caused by heavy rains, etc.
  • Eco-friendly
