Recycled Plastic Asphalt Trial – Fulton Hogan

0 Comments | July 4, 2018

SIS wish to congratulate Fulton Hogan on their recent large-scale trial of incorporating recycled plastic into bitumen binder to make asphalt.

 

The trial section, conducted at Christchurch International Airport, was laid in late May 2018 and involved the use of used plastic oil containers, which would have otherwise been sent to landfill. Fulton Hogan reuses oil that they collect from businesses as an alternative fuel source. The plastic containers are shredded and granulated before being incorporated into the bitumen.

 

The plastic-bitumen asphalt created with these containers will be used for the loading of heavy vehicle traffic.

 

SIS’ product development team members have been working to incorporate recycled, post-consumer waste plastic into our products for over 20 years.  As strong supporters of recycled products and of the infrastructure industry, SIS are very proud to support initiatives such as this. Not only do these sorts of approaches minimise the negative environmental impact of plastic waste, but they also recognise the high quality and performability of plastic products in infrastructure settings.
