Let's clean up our oceans and landfills
Recycled materials can be used for the internal support structure. Over 46,000 pieces of plastic litter are floating on every square mile of ocean today. In the Central Pacific, there are up to 6 pounds of marine litter to every pound of plankton.
Trash bags, water bottles and other plastics, and rubber tires can be mixed with organic materials to create parts of the Solar Road Panels: five billion of them for the U.S. alone! Incorporating this waste into the internal support structure of the Solar Road Panel will be a focus of our Phase II research.
What better way to "kill two birds with one stone" than to give the garbage that sits in our landfills and oceans a new home inside the very panels that can power our world?
We want to make every effort to keep the project "green", following the adage for reduce, reuse and recyle. This will be true from manufacturing all the way through to installation and maintainance.An entertaining mockumentary about the life of a plastic grocery bag:
