Coca-Cola, a well-known beverage company, has entered into an agreement with the Federal Development Agency (FDA) to make a ‘plastic road‘ with used bottles in Islamabad.
Amir Ahmad about Plastic road
CDA chairman Amir Ahmad Ali told Urdu News that under a project to evaluate the project, Coca-Cola will make a plastic road from used plastic inside F-9 Park.
If the test is successful, then the one-kilometer road from Ayub Chowk to Margalla Road will be made of plastic.
Memorandum between Coca-Cola and CDA
A memorandum of understanding has been signed between Coca-Cola and the CDA a few days ago.
According to the CDA chairman, the trial will begin this week at Fatima Jinnah Park F-9 and it will be seen how long the road construction will last with this document.
Such an experience has not yet happened in Pakistan. If the F-Nine Park test is successful, the brewery will make 1 kilometer of road in Islamabad free of charge under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Plans of CDA
According to Amir Ahmad Ali, the CDA itself will be looking at building a plastic road used in its future plans because it is less harmful to the environment than other building materials.
According to the CDA chairman, similar research is being conducted in many countries, including India.
It is estimated that the coca-cola company will use about 8 tons of plastic to build 1 kilometer of road. The project aims to promote clean and green Pakistan.
