Enables Readers to Understand the What, Why, and How Behind Using Sustainable Plastics in Manufacturing Operations

The  impact of 50 years of unbridled plastics production, use, and disposal  is now becoming well known and documented. Plastics made from  non-renewable petroleum and natural gas resources threaten the  environment, human health, species maintenance, and the very life of the  ocean. This book helps readers understand the ability of plastics to be  sustainable and goes over the plastic products which have a lower  carbon footprint, lower waste, and lower pollution. 

The  well-qualified author’s unique perspective puts a special focus on  comprehensive coverage of environmental impacts of plastics including  Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) and sustainability strategies related to  biobased plastics (e.g., corn), recycled plastics, and petroleum-based  plastics. Other samples topics covered in the book include: 

  • End-of-life options for petroleum and biobased plastics including mechanical recycling, chemical recycling, and composting 
  • ASTM biodegradation standards for compost, marine, anaerobic digestion, and landfill environments
  • Polymer processing, including injection molding, blow molding, extrusion, and compression molding
  • Environmental data and coverage of petroleum plastics, sustainable composites, and new information on bio-based plastics

The  book serves as an invaluable resource for plastics engineers, materials  engineers, and all professionals in related disciplines looking to  understand and apply the usage of sustainable plastics in many different  types of manufacturing operations.
