Abstract
The disposal of waste plastic poses a significant environmental threat, contributing to both pollution and climate change. Bituminous mixes gain strength and improved properties when plastic waste is used in them. Additionally, it will provide a solution to the problem of disposing of plastic and various pavement flaws, such as, ruts, corrugations, potholes etc. Poly-ethylene, polystyrene, and polypropylene are the types of waste plastic utilized. The shredded waste plastic is coated with aggregate, mixed with hot bitumen, and used to construct pavement. The pavement's durability and strength will both increase as a result of this. As a material for absorbing smoke, the titanium dioxide will absorb the vehicle's smoke. The hot, humid climate of India will benefit greatly from this innovative technology. It is cost-effective and environment friendly. We have talked about the design of pavement, and the process of flexible plastic pavement and plastic-smoke-absorbing pavement in this paper.
