UK-based Roadfill develops a technology that combines waste plastic with graphene that is used to repair roads, while cutting CO2 emissions and creating a circular economy. According to the company's research, its products reduce bitumen (heated petroleum) usage by up to 14%, and last on average 7X longer, which can cut costs for public bodies and businesses by up to 30%. The products can be more weather and pothole resistant, and give greater surface friction, reducing tyre fatigue and braking distances.

Roadfill is now raising funds in a successful crowdfunding campaign. The campaigns ends today, and the company already raised over £550,000 from over 600 investors, well over its original £350,000 target. If you are interested, hop over to Seedrs to check the company out - as you can still invest in it today.

Roadfill has been testing its technology with Universities, and it has also signed NDAs with several companies to further develop the technology. It has performed trials in Greek, and it reports that the roads remained intact after the devastating wildfires last summer.
