The use of plastic waste in road construction in South Africa
Grant holder: Mr G Mturi
Duration: 1 March 2019 to 31 May 2020
Project outline: There are many focus areas in road construction where waste plastic technology can be implemented. The aim of this demonstration project is to facilitate a relatively rapid implementation of existing international technologies under the constraints of limited financial resources, i.e. identify where maximum impact can be achieved (using significant amounts of low value plastic) within a short time frame, using minimum research efforts towards “new” technology.
