November 15, 2021 Meijer

In collaboration with Meijer, Dow enabled a new paving technique using recycled plastic bags to create a more durable parking lot for the retailer’s Holland, Mich. supercenter. This recycled polymer modified asphalt (RPMA) parking lot is a three-phase pilot project that used approximately 12,500 pounds of post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR), which is the equivalent weight of 944,000 plastic grocery bags.
