reuse of plastic waste in road construction full report
Post: #1


What is plastic??

A material that contains one or more organic polymers of large molecular

weight, solid in its finished state and at some state while manufacturing or

processing into finished articles, can be shaped by its flow.
Types of plastics


solids or semi solid materials
light yellow to darkbrown in colour
carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.
globules on the bark .


derived primarily from petroleum.
polystyrene, polyesters and acrylics
used in the manufacture of varnishes, plastics, adhesives and rubber.

Various Resins Of Plastic

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET,PETE)
Density polyethylene(HDPE)
Vinyl(Poly vinyl chloride or PVC)
Low Density Polyethylene(LDPE)


Segregation .
Cleaning process .
Shredding process .
Collection process .

2.Wet Process

Waste plastics by direct mixing
with hot bitumen at 160°C
Mechanical stirrer is needed
Addition of stabilizers and proper cooling.
Since the wet process require a lot of investment and bigger plants
Not commonly used..


Use higher percentage of plastic waste.
Reduce the need of bitumen by around 10%.
Increase the strength and performance of the road.
Reduce the cost to around Rs. 5000/Km. of single lane road.
Generate jobs for rag pickers.
Develop a technology, which is eco-friendly.


1. Cleaning process
Toxics present in the co-mingled plastic waste would d start leaching.
2. During the road laying process
But the presence of chlorine will definitely release noxious HCL gas.

3.After the road laying

The components of the road, once it has been laid, are not inert.
It is opined that the first rain will trigger leaching. As the plastics will merely

form a sticky layer, (mechanical abrasion).
once the road is started to be used will cause the release of fine polymer particles.
When air-borne, these will cause a particulate problem.


Plastic will increase the melting point of the bitumen
use of the innovative technology not only strengthened the road construction but

also increased the road life
Help to improve the environment .
plastic road would be a boon for Indiaâ„¢s hot and extremely humid climate where

durable and eco-friendly roads which will relive the earth from all type of plastic

Many forest activities require short term access for vehicles and equipment over sensitive sites or soils with low bearing capacity. Likewise, many projects in the forest benefit from work schedule extensions or seasonal adjustments that allow increased sensitivity to wildlife. Temporary access over environmentally sensitive sites is facilitated by effective crossing systems that are economical as well as easily installed, moved within project, and removed. The “plastic road” is one such system .
This system is lightweight, portable, reusable, inexpensive, and easily constructed of readily available materials. The plastic road was conceived with use on temporary roads in mind.
