The Asphalt Plastic is made of common asphalt material but with a mix of cut-up plastic waste, type of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) that takes form of plastic bag. In order to cover the needs of cut-up plastic waste, CAP also work hand-in-hand with Indonesian Olefin, Aromatic and Plastic Industry Association (INAPLAS) and Indonesian Plastic Recycle Association (ADUPI).
