According to a new study published by McKinsey (2021), over the next few years, the traditional road construction sector will gradually develop into an automated, digital industry that takes advantage of new materials. This transformation is taking shape through four key trends: autonomous vehicles, automated production, digitalisation and the adoption of new road-building materials. As a result, the roads of the future will not only look different, but they will also be quicker and easier to produce and construct. Thanks to the use of new materials, like recycled plastic. PlasticRoad is creating a stir in the traditional world of infrastructure development. With the market introduction of a renewed and industrially produced product, the company is making circular infrastructure made from plastic waste reality.
To respond more effectively to current trends in the market and cater to a more diverse customer demand, PlasticRoad proudly presents a renewed product portfolio. This portfolio offers infrastructure solutions for the effects of climate change, the circular economy and modern-day challenges in the area of infrastructure, like carbon emissions and time and space restrictions and associated costs in built-up areas when it comes to realising and maintaining infrastructure. ‘’PlasticRoad has come a long way since its first product trials in 2018. Today we officially launch our circular, climate-adaptive and lightweight (CCL) products onto the market. These industrially produced products made from plastic waste are now commercially available, we are ready. With CCL200 and CCL300, we are working together with a wide range of partners on achieving their and our sustainable ambitions,’’ says PlasticRoad’s Managing Director Eric Kievit.
