Plastic and glass waste represents a significant global environmental challenge, worsened by the inefficiencies and constraints of conventional recycling methods. To solve this issue, we developed Littar, an innovative technology designed to repurpose all types of plastic and glass waste into a valuable and sustainable resource for road construction.
Littar is a versatile solution for “negative value waste”, converting it into an eco-friendly alternative for traditional asphalt that is used for the foundation of roads, sidewalks, and other traffic surfaces. More specifically, it is used as base and/or binder layer in road structures and is certified according to European regulations.
The utilization of Littar provides superior mechanical and thermal properties compared to its conventional counterparts, alongside significant reductions in weight, transport emissions, and costs. Littar is produced by existing asphalt plants using locally sourced plastic and glass waste aggregates in a circular economy. The production process of Littar compared to normal asphalt mixtures is exactly the same, allowing for easy and fast adoption of the technology by the industries.
“That’s here, that’s home, that’s us. On it, everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was. Lived out their lives on this pale blue dot, suspended in a sunbeam. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand. This underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”
