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. In a format ideally suited as a study–aid, yet also a comprehensive and current reference tool, the book covers such areas as:

∗ Waste management issues

∗ Environmental impact

∗ Waste streams


∗ Recycling techniques

∗ Socio–economic implications

∗ Future directions

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.
