- Using local waste plastics to enhance local roads
- Reducing the costs of asphalt manufacturing
- Reducing carbon emissions and the waste plastic epidemic
- Creating circular economies
At MacRebur®, our mission is to help solve two world problems; to help end the waste plastic epidemic, and to enhance the asphalt used to make road surfaces around the world. Our innovative solution involves processing waste plastics destined for landfill or incineration and adding them into asphalt for road construction and surfacing to extend and enhance the bitumen (fossil fuel) binder.
MacRebur's® carefully selected plastics, taken from the waste stream, are added into roads to improve strength and durability, whilst reducing the quantity of the oil-based bitumen used in a traditional road mix.
By extending part of the bitumen in the mix, MacRebur® products reduce fossil fuel usage, leading to a reduction in carbon footprint and helping to foster a circular economy.
With each km of road laid using our MR products, we estimate we use up the equivalent weight of 740,541 one-time-use plastic bags. 1 tonne of MacRebur® mix contains the equivalent of 857 plastic bags.

Use of proceeds
MacRebur® are ready to massively scale up and to do so need to build their own manufacturing plants (simlar to their Lockerbie site) in 5 strategic locations across the world.
MacRebur® work with a large number of construction firms, asphalt manufacturers, Departments of Transport and private construction work who all demand MacRebur® use local waste in local roads. As a leader in the Plastic Road market, MacRebur® will be able to offer this to them by putting their own facilities into strategic locations and managing these themselves.
