Innovation comes in many forms and Auckland-based company Enviroplaz have developed a way to turn plastic into concrete.
Not only is this a way to stop plastic from reaching our oceans, rivers or landfills, but the potential cost savings benefits that companies could achieve are outstanding. Founding Director Peter Barrow estimates that companies could save up to 20% from their concrete costs.
“We can build a truck tanker that’s almost as competitively priced as a steel tanker, and yet you don’t have to paint it, it doesn’t rust and it doesn’t rot so the maintenance cost is a lot lower” explains Barrow.
