Europe’s First Bridge Made of Recycled Plastic

Although some people thought they were crazy at first, a relatively new Welsh startup called Vertech Ltd. recently upcycled a whopping 50 tonnes of plastic waste into a 90 foot bridge that is durable enough to accommodate heavy-duty vehicles. Realized with help from specialized bridge designers and engineers from Rutgers and Cardiff Universities, the 100% recyclable bridge spans the Tweed River at Easter Dawyck and makes up part of the historic John Buchan Way.
