The world’s most sustainable road. That’s what the team behind the PlasticRoad concept have been working towards from the very beginning. To help make cities, towns and villages circular. Climate-adaptive and low in emissions. PlasticRoad can significant contribute to this aim.
Smart sustainable infrastructure solutions
PlasticRoad designs, creates and supplies sustainable, climate-proof and circular road elements, made from municipal plastic waste. We are working towards the widespread and large-scale adoption of these elements by the international market. Our objective: To create new infrastructure for everyone, with the smallest possible negative impact on our planet and natural resources.
PlasticRoad combines effective solutions for challenges relating to plastic waste, urban water management and soil subsidence with the most circular, climate-proof and sustainable infrastructure in the world. The quest for sustainability forms both the heart of our product and motivates every member of our team.
What have we achieved so far?
UP TO 72% REDUCTION IN EMISSIONS
UP TO 75% LESS RAW MATERIALS AND EARTHWORKS REQUIRED
SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE TO INCINERATION, DUMPING OR EXPORT OF WASTE
WORLD’S MOST CIRCULAR PAVING SOLUTION
BASE MATERIAL: 100% RECYCLED PLASTIC WASTE
CONTRIBUTION TO SIX SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
This could be done differently. Anne Koudstaal and Simon Jorritsma wanted to help build a better, more sustainable society. Could we come up with sustainable development options for our public spaces? And how can we ensure that they double as solutions for a variety of other problems faced by today’s society? Taking these questions as their point of departure, in 2013 the two inventors jointly developed the PlasticRoad concept. What have been our key milestones since then?
