Roadfill Introduces Revolutionary Graphene-based Road Repair Technology

The UK-based company Roadfill’s new road repair technology is the first of its kind, aiming to incorporate graphene into roads. On the Government’s side of things, these roads are extremely cost effective, as the asphalt uses a combination of graphene and plastic waste (which repurposes something that previously had no use except for harming the environment). Not only that, but they reduce heated petroleum usage by 14%, which means that there’s less money coming out of the government’s pocket. 

Another major plus of this new technology is the incredible durability that it has, as these new roads last 7 times longer than average. Once those streets are paved, regardless of any harsh weather or temperatures, they’re here to stay. No more pesky potholes! They even have a much higher surface tension than normal roads, which means that the pavement won’t wear down your tires nearly as quickly as usual, which is another big win for us civilians. 

After raising £550,000 during its crowd-funding campaign, it offers great promise to anyone who’s ever seen a road, as it even endured a physical test when it came to the Greek wildfires that occurred previously this year. 

If you’re interested in continuing the funding for this new technology (although don’t feel too pressured, as they’ve already surpassed their goal by over £200,000), then you can head over here to invest.
