    Turning plastic waste into open road.

    Dow, a major plastics producer, is mixing recycled plastic into asphalt, creating road surfaces that are cheaper, more eco-friendly, and more durable than conventional highways. Dow has built only about 60 miles of hybrid road so far, but that alone diverted 200 tons of plastic from landfill. New projects await in Vietnam, Mexico, Brazil, and the Philippines.
