Nelplast Eco Ghana is a Ghanaian company that turns waste plastic bags, water bags, plastic film and containers into pavement slabs and tiles, which last beyond 35 years and are 800% stronger than ordinary pavement blocks. Plastic waste is transformed through an innovative recycling process to produce new construction materials.
