According to specialists at the 81st annual conference of the Indian Road Congress (IRC) in the state capital, using plastic in road construction can increase the lifespan of thoroughfares and be a useful way to manage waste.
Use of this once-wonderful material for road construction is an excellent answer, according to Mahesh Kasture, chief manager corporate of Bharat Petroleum Corporation, who spoke at an IRC technical session. Speaking on "Utilization of plastic trash in road and related construction,"
According to him, using plastic to build roads is an efficient way to use plastic in an environmentally favourable way. "Several segments that were laid across India and are still in operation, serve as proof of the method'. His success will enable the Swachh Bharat Mission's objective to be met and will create carbon credits for the green utilisation of waste plastic, he said while displaying images and videos of a plastic-made trail in Noida that was built years ago and is still smooth.
He shared data from projects completed nationwide, including those in Kochi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Maharashtra, and Noida, saying that "Total use was roughly 250 metric tonne of plastic in about 5 to 6 kilometres of road."
"Plastic won't reappear under the road once it's there".
"He asserted that extending the reach of this process' investigation into additional areas might benefit from the IRC's recommendations."
