Currently roads are paved with asphalt or cured by concrete. But, could roads in the future be installed with recycled waste? Mashable went to the Netherlands to take a look at plastic roads. In the Netherlands, three companies partnered up to collect your recycled plastic and turn it into bike paths. PlasticRoad is a Lego-like road system that consists of modular, prefabricated sections. The plastic road has a hollow space inside it and can host cables, pipelines, but also rainwater so that the street does not become flooded in case of heavy rainfall.
This is fascinating!
