The ecological proposal is not only good because it uses plastic waste from the oceans and turns it into something useful, but also because it replaces traditional asphalt. Asphalt production accounts for 1.6 million tons of CO2 emissions per year, or 2% of all emissions from road transport. Plastic roads are not a completely new idea, Indian chemistry professor Rajagopalan Vasudevan has developed a method to turn recycled plastic into asphalt, Vancouver has also paved its streets for a while with recycled plastic. But this only solves part of the problem.

VolkerWessels roads would have an easy snap-lock design, like Legos, which could be easily accessible for repairs. Roads could also be moved to different locations, an unprecedented innovation that is especially ideal for sandy or marshy terrain in the Netherlands. Inside the precast bricks there would be a hollow space, for the creation of easily accessible infrastructure, electricity, telephone or any other type of supply that needs it (It would seem incredible not to see a street raised every month to replace or install new pipes). While the project is still in the development phase, it is exciting to hear these creative approaches are being considered to address solutions to widespread environmental destruction.
