Abstract

Global warming is the most concerned topic nowadays. A large amount of bio-hazardous waste is created all over the world through discarding footwear. They get mixed with municipal solid waste or disposed over land area. So to reduce the various types of ill effects of solid waste created in million tones every year, we need to reuse the discarded footwear. In under developing countries where proper maintenance of road network is difficult due to lack of funds or heavy traffic better road infrastructure is required in less maintenance. In many investigations it has been found that strength of paving mixes can improved by adding various types of modifiers and agents with bitumen such as shredded rubber, polypropylene, Fly Ash etc. By use of such modifiers the viscosity characteristics and temperature susceptibility of bitumen are effectively improved and helped in improving certain problems such as bleeding of bitumen during summer season and stripping of aggregates in rainy season. The paper proposes an idea to develop a system to repair potholes using sustainable materials such as discarded footwear. It focuses on the current challenges with the existing technology to repair the potholes and how the proposed idea would be a boon to solve the present-day problem.
