Synopses & Reviews
Part of the hugely popular Without the Hot Air series, this book is accessibly written from an engineering perspective on a wide range of materials
Presenting a vision of change for how future generations can still use steel, cement, plastics, etcetera, but with less impact on the environment, this book is a wake-up call first, and then a solutions manual. By providing an evidence-based vision of change, the book can play a significant role in influencing our future. Written for designers; engineers; operations, technical, and business managers; traders; and government and NGO officials associated with business, climate, energy, environment, waste, trade and financing. It is relevant to a wide range of industries, including energy, construction, consulting, manufacturing, transport, and architecture, but will also appeal to those who love popular science. This second edition is updated with the latest developments in both science and industry.
