From Problem to Pavement
Last20 Upcycle integrates PE plastics into asphalt and rocks and this is our sustainable paving brand. PE plastics are commonly found in film plastics like grocery bags or packaging. In India and the UK, governments have started testing the results of adding recycled plastic to pavement blends to replace bitumen. The results, the road was cheaper, more water- and impact-resistant than conventional roads and thousands and tonnes of plastic being upcycled in the process. We are working with chemical engineers from the University of Waterloo to develop a proprietary solution for pavement blends. We plan to launch our commercial product and first test road by the end of 2020. Let's pave the way to a sustainable future together!
