Abstract: Rapid development and growth of nations has led to increased human-induced activities which is the main cause of climate change and environmental destruction. The construction industry is argued to be responsible for causing the most harm to our environment due to the nature of the industry requiring vast amount of raw materials and producing waste energy in the production process. The detrimental impacts on the environment are also made worse with rising affluence, which resulted in overwhelming waste generation. The increased in waste generated, particularly plastic waste, requires additional land for landfilling and poses difficulties in its disposal method. Thus, this research paper looks into implementing a solution which addresses both issues mentioned via the use of Polymer Modified Bituminous (PMB) mix. This proposed new material, used extensively in the roads of India, will be studied in great detail as to its preparation methods, its composition characteristics, and the positive expectations expected to be derived from its use. This research paper also highlights the concerns faced on the use of PMB mix and proposes possible solutions to overcome such concerns. In addition, a study as to its feasibility for use in roads of Singapore will be conducted and relevant regulatory specifications will be strictly adhered to.
