Plastics and Sustainability
Towards A Peaceful Coexistence Between Bio-based and Fossil Fuel-based PlasticsBook - 2012
"This book addresses an issue of current importance to plastics and manufacturing industry readers, and also to society as a whole. Its guiding question concerns the production, consumption, use, and disposal of plastic products, and how our cultural practice of relying on plastic products can (if it can) fit our needs for a sustainable economy and world. It discusses all possible footprints of plastics use, not just focusing on greenhouse gas production, but also on toxicity and human health, societal standards, and effects on ecosystems"-- Provided by publisher.
