Highlights

  • The Kempegowda International airport at Bangalore has installed special dustbins in its vicinity.
  • When you put plastic waste into these dustbins, the plastic goes into making the roads in the city
  • The initiative has been called the “plastic beku” initiative and involves many partner companies
  • The plastic will be collected from schools as well

The international airport of Bangalore, the Kempegowda International Airport has launched a “plastic Beku” initiative on Thursday, 26th September 2019. In this initiative, special dustbins are being placed around the airport, which will use plastic waste to construct the roads. This initiative has been undertaken by the KK Plastic Management which has the technology to mix plastic and bitumen and create roads. These roads have been proven to be more strong and durable than conventional roads.

Who are involved?

In an official statement, it was revealed that Big FM, FMCG giant, ITC’s food division will be part of the initiative.

Besides the airport, the project will be undertaken at schools as well. As of now, 3 schools have been chosen, but future plans include over 20 schools.

In a release, it was mentioned that this would eliminate the irresponsible use of plastic and improves sustainability.

How can we contribute?

For every citizen of India who supports the cause, Sunfeast Yipee! will donate Rs 1.

How is the mixture for the roads made?

The aggregate and bitumen are mixed at a high temperature of 1500 degrees Celsius. Thereafter, 6% to 8% of plastic will be blended in.
