From the Back Cover:

An accessible treatment of this crucial area of environmental chemistry, Polymers, the Environment and Sustainable Development employs an interdisciplinary approach to tackle the problem of polymeric materials' inherent durability and subsequent persistence in the environment.

* LCA

* Recycling techniques

Each chapter provides a complete coverage of the main themes with directed further reading and revision exercises with sample questions and answers to consolidate the main issues addressed.

Essential reading for both advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students of the vast arena of environmental and polymer sciences.

Review:

“This book is a very useful and up-to-date account of the role of polymers in modern society, considering relevant implications of their use, production and disposal throughout their life cycle. The book is clear and well organized following a logical evolution according to the life cycle of polymers. The remarkable characteristic of this book is that it is almost written as a tale, concise and precise, without lacking detail and providing reliable scientific data.”  (International Journal of Environmental Studies, 10 January 2011)
