We are slowly exhausting a number of substances derived from our planet such as oil, phosphates, helium, gold and even elements such as rare earths are becoming scarce.
In this new book, Materials for a Sustainable Future, experts provide a readable account of the concepts of sustainable living including include up-to-date statistics, recent research, and references to the latest work.
The book brings together five key themes which can appear disparate in topic, but which are all linked to sustainability allowing comparisons, synergies and issues to be identified. These include elements that could soon be in short supply; sustainability related to biomass; methane for transportation fuel and chemical production; materials related to energy conversion, storage and distribution; and sustainability related to materials in the urban environment and to water.
From industrialists and researchers to policy makers and the public, this book is suitable for anyone wanting a better understanding of sustainable materials.
