More appealing to environmentalists, they incorporate 100% of the old asphalt - sparing the air from dozens of trips by trucks hauling away and bringing in building material - and provide a new market for plastic products that could otherwise wind up in a landfill.

Pure puffery and bullshiat. We've been recycling road surfaces on-site for many decades. And we have incorporated plastics, car tires, etc. The ONLY person who is unaware of this is the reporter

Yeah, asphalt is the most recycled thing on the planet.  Over 99% of it is recycled.


I mean, if this is the only thing they can make economically feasible for plastic bottle recycling I'm all for it if it's not producing markedly crappier roads.

Really, we just need to STOP USING PLASTIC.

Polymer additives in asphalt and macadam paving mixes arent new.
It's the economics, technical advances, and industry's willingness to change that's allowing PET and lower grade plastics to expand the pavment designers options
