      Whilst there is now mass awareness of the issue of ocean plastics, turning that awareness into action requires us to understand attitudes and behaviours of business and communities. What needs to happen towards sustainable use of plastics by stakeholders, and what does the resources and waste management community need to do to help make that happen?

      Building Roads Of The Future with Waste Plastics

      My mission is to help solve two world problems; to stop the waste plastic epidemic, and to enhance the asphalt used to make our road surfaces around the world. I am the CEO of MacRebur – The Plastic Road Company and our innovative solution involves processing waste plastics destined for landfill or incineration and adding them into asphalt for road construction and surfacing to extend and enhance the bitumen (fossil fuel) binder. If you are fed up with potholed roads, passionate about our environment and recycling, then MacRebur® is the solution for you.
