|A Materials Revolution||John Harrison||
No text on materials would be complete without a discussion about the techno-process whereby the planet supplies resources, we use them and then throw what is left away. Materials are virtually everything between the take and waste in this process and it follows that for sustainability what they are made of and how they are made is very important.
The idea that we can save the planet from a slow techno induced death, solve global warming, waste and a number of other environmental problems by making money doing so sounds preposterous but is however uniquely likely to succeed.
An economically driven energy and materials revolution requiring paradigm
shifts in the technology underlying materials and thus the underlying molecular
flows around the planet is essential if the many problems we face
including use impact, waste and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are going
to be solved.
