A UK startup takes plastic destined for landfills or oceans, processes it into millions of tiny pellets and uses them to make asphalt. MacRebur’s products are made from 100% waste materials and are used to replace part of the bitumen in any asphalt mix.The company says these roads are cheaper to make, less prone to potholes and more eco friendly.  

The idea behind  MacRebur and its simple, clever invention is to solve three serious world challenges - use up millions of tons of waste plastic that sit in our landfill sites and oceans; reduce the millions spent on new roads, maintenance, and pothole repair; and make our roads stronger and longer lasting.
