Campaign: The Ray

Originally published on BBC World Hacks Radio

As scientists and companies work on cleaning up cars, there’s also a team developing new technology along a road in rural Georgia in the United States, with the aim of making a truly sustainable highway. The Ray, an 18-mile stretch of road near the Alabama border, is a “living laboratory” where eco-friendly projects are being tested.

We meet the team behind the project and explore whether cleaner roads can be rolled out elsewhere in the United States and further afield.
