520    This text addresses the common negative perception of 
       polymer materials on the environment with a thorough 
       analysis of what really occurs when industry and academia 
       collaborate to find environmental solutions. The book 
       examines the environmental and social effects of polymer 
       materials and explains methods of quantifying 
       environmental performance. With an emphasis on the 
       importance of education, the authors stress the importance
       of awareness and activity in negating polymers'' 
       environmental impact.
