Motion S5M-17373: Springfield Properties, Making Use of Waste Plastic

22 May 2019

That the Parliament congratulates the Moray-based firm, Springfield Properties, on, it understands, being the first house builder in the UK to build a road on a housing development using waste plastic; understands that this is part of the project at its Linkwood Steadings development in Elgin; notes that the company joined forces with the Alness-based asphalt producer, Pat Munro, and MacRebur, which is a Lockerbie-based business that is responsible for developing this innovative technology that enables waste plastic to be added to asphalt for use on roads; agrees that what it sees as such examples of environmental ingenuity, planning and cooperation are indispensable for Scotland to become a climate-neutral nation, and commends all three companies for their role in making Scotland a greener and cleaner society.
