PlasticRoad and Orbia (BMV: Orbia), in collaboration with the Mexico City Mobility Secretariat (SEMOVI) and the Mexico City Environment Secretariat (SEDEMA), have inaugurated the first PlasticRoad pilot in Latin America located in the second section of Mexico City’s Chapultepec Forest (Bosque de Chapultepec). The PlasticRoad pilot is made from over 1000 kilograms of plastic waste—the equivalent of half a million plastic bottle caps. PlasticRoad bv is responsible for developing the eponymous climate-adaptive and smart infrastructure solution.
At the presentation of this new infrastructure, Sameer Bharadwaj, CEO of Orbia said, “At Orbia, we work at the intersection of basic and advanced materials and infrastructure solutions that advance life around the world. With the partnership of the local government, SEMOVI and SEDEMA, we are proud to inaugurate PlasticRoad in Mexico City and support this incredible global capital and its citizens on the journey to climate resilience.”
