Not only will the E-kerb have considerable functional advantages over its concrete predecessor; but it will also have the advantage that if mass produced from waste plastic, it will have the capacity to consume very large quantities of materials that would otherwise be land-filled.

A standard, small kerbstone has dimensions: 1000mm x 150mm x 50mm. Were it to be made of 75% densified plastic, and, assuming that approximately 40 million stones are used per annum, the potential exists to recycle some 300,000 tonnes of low grade thermoplastic per year in the UK alone.
