Jamshedpur, a city in the state of Jharkhand, is setting an example when it comes to recycling Plastics and putting it to use.They are using plastic waste to construct roads. We have to keep in mind that plastics are non-biodegradable substance and is very hard to dispose of.

Jamshedpur, a city in Jharkhand, uses plastic waste to make roads

Plastic waste is collected from across the city and brought to 10 collection centers. The waste is then broken down by shredding it to 2 mm to 4 mm before processing it further. Plastic waste is then mixed with Bitumen, an oil based substance, used as a common binder in road construction.

* Jamshedpur Utilites and Services Company(Jusco), a subidiary company of Tatal steel, has undertaken an initiave to use plastic waste for road construction in Jamshedpur.
* Till now, 48 to 50 kms of roads has been constructed under this project.
* Bitumen Technology(Dry Process) patented by Thiagarajar College of Engineering (TCE), Tirupparankuram, Madurai is being used on plastic waste to construct roads.
* The roads construced using this technology are of better quality and don’t require maintenance in first five years.
* Now, all the roads in Jamshedpur uses 20 to 30 percent plastic waste mixed with bitumen.
* For every one km long and four metre wide road made using this technology, one tonne of bitumen costing Rs 50,000 is saved.

Jusco has recieved requests from many states for replicating the technology but JUSCO has no plans of commercialising this discovery, only to use it to serve society. Ambikapur, in the state of Chhattisgarh too has tried this technology.

No wonder, Jamshedpur is the 7th cleanest city in India.
