Canadian firms Nova Chemicals Corp. and GreenMantra Technologies have completed a second asphalt paving project in Ontario that incorporates the equivalent of 700,000 plastic bags in post-consumer recycled plastic materials into two pathways and a parking lot.

The asphalt paving project was completed at the construction site of Nova’s newest polyethylene manufacturing facility on Rokeby Line in St. Clair Township, near Sarnia.

“This is an excellent example of Canadian innovation and collaboration to shape a world that is better tomorrow than it is today,” said Sarah Marshall, Nova’s vice president of sustainability. “Together, we are finding new solutions to divert plastic waste from landfill and create a circular economy for plastic materials.”
