Carbon trapping Congrete

Really its carbon neutral. But if they expand this to most concrete globally, it would be like taking 135 million cars per year off the road.

Wow SB Shocked thats awesome.

There is a guy that single use plastics and grinds them up into a pellet like product and sells them asphalt manufacturers and they use them for roads and it produces 60 percent stronger surface than traditional asphalt.

There are some truly amazing initiatives being developed and used.

I have worked with asphalt before and I can assure you that melting plastic into the bituminous mix--or replacing the bituminous mix completely--would still make for safe, traffic-worthy roads. The mix to which I refer is basically the leftover crap that petroleum distillation plants can't use for any other product.

The other nice thing about concrete is that it can be used for quick, low-cost housing by pouring the concrete into pre-cast molds or pouring it over an inflatable balloon which then sets into a dome-shaped structure--imagine a hobbit house only not underground. There are also 3D printers using concrete which can build a house in only a week or two.
