Amata Thailand’s Plastic Road Initiative
In 2018, Amata Corporation Public Company Limited, Chemicals Business of Siam Cement Group (SCG) and Dow Thailand Group signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop the first recycled plastic roads in Thailand. The roads are developed for Amata City Chonburi industrial estate in a pilot project that creates new value for plastic waste and advances a circular economy. The project offers opportunities to increase the durability of asphalt roads while reducing the amount of plastic waste in the industrial estate. The partnership between the three organizations will serve as a model of how organizations can collaborate to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the environment, advance a circular economy and create value for plastic waste.
