ROAD FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC

San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has recently started testing asphalt produced with recycled plastic waste and bitumen as additives on a 1,500-square meter pilot site at its new logistics center in General Trias, Cavite. Some 900 kilos of plastic waste, equivalent to some 180,000 sachets and plastic bags, were used for the test site. SMC president Ramon S. Ang says that the initiative is to address the plastic waste issue by creating a sustainable use for waste plastics that would usually end up in landfills, rivers and oceans. The company also earlier announced the shift to biodegradable plastic packaging for food and non-food products through the technology developed by Philippine Bioresins Corporation.
