So the guy says in the video there are NO microplastics in the asphalt, but still there is the reporter in the studio and another on the video that don't know how much is in there!
This product has been known about for some time and is more durable than current asphalt. It was promoted last year as a filler for potholes, of which we have plenty in the UK, and doesn't fall apart as soon as the next winter arrives. Why aren't more authorities using it? Good question! Greta, your turn ;)O:)
