The UK Council will test plant-based’street furniture.’: Hampshire County Council claims to be the first Highway Authority in the UK to test plant-based plastic bollards.

The street furniture is constructed of sugar cane-derived plant-based bio-polymers.

The local government, which declared a climate emergency in 2019, stated that the sugar cane used to make these bollards was controlled and met local and international sustainability criteria.

The bollards are low carbon since they are not built of concrete, which is the most frequent material used to make them.

“These new bio polymer bollards are made from sugar cane and when sugar cane grows it absorbs carbon dioxide.” Said Councillor Russell Oppenheimer, The county Council’s Executive Member for Highways Operations.

“This ‘carbon capture’ actually reduces the carbon levels in the atmosphere — providing a negative carbon footprint.
