Plastics have changed the world, and they continue to do so but the innovative potential of plastics is far from exhausted. Plastics are eco-efficient in many ways. For example, they efficiently insulate buildings, they provide light-weight and safe packaging, they reduce the weight of cars and make them quieter; and they help us to harness the sun and wind as energy sources. But at some point, every product comes to the end of its useful life. Energy recovery is the incineration of plastic waste, while simultaneously using the energy for generating electricity or steam or for providing process heat. Energy recovery is particularly suitable for mixed or contaminated fractions of plastic waste. The high calorific value of plastics is actually similar to that of fuel oil. Therefore, plastics can partly substitute fuel oil as primary raw material, immediately conserving primary resources. In the early years of the European Packaging Directive entering into force, the primary goal of the plastics industry was its contribution to ensuring the recovery of used plastics and creating the necessary recovery capacities. Today's goal is eco-efficiency, which means recovery that is efficient both in ecological and economic terms.

Plastics touch every aspect of life. Without plastics, much of what we depend on daily at work and home would disappear. Despite its prevalence, the moldable material doesnt enjoy top-of-the-mind awareness, especially among the current generation of students. This episode of degrees that work. attempts to change that. The expertise of national experts is combined with the work of high school students engaged in a plastics project to illuminate the exciting nature and possibilities of the field. Visits to NPE 2009 in Chicago, the largest gathering of plastics professionals in the world, and to KNEX Brands, one of the largest injection molders in the country, provide additional insight into a sector that offers ample, rewarding career opportunities for todays students.

Plastic is the backbone of our society but oil reserves are decreasing and evidence points to its noxious effects on our health and the environment. Could intelligent recycling be the answer? Hundreds of miles in the open Pacific, a jellyfish is drifting among plastic bags, bits of waste trapped in its tentacles. We found the water column there contains six times more plastic than animal life, warns this marine biologist. Chemicals released from plastic pass along the food chain. The creatures at the end of it, man himself, get the entire load. Currents gather waste from the coast forming a carpet of rubbish the size of Central Europe. The harmful effects of those chemicals on the human body range from infertility to cancer. The solution? Cradle to cradle recycling. Environmental chemist Michael Braungart aims at creating products that could be recycled an infinite number of times. 'Even at the planning stage of a product, we think of how and where its useful life will end. This means that each constituent must initially be non-toxic and all constituents must be easily separable.' He boldly claims, 'All things can be reinvented. See Full Film Here: www.booserver.com

Following a presentation to Google employees by Captain Charles Moore, an oceanographer who pioneered the study of plastic debris, the Strategic Council on Plastic Pollution convened at the Google Campus in Mountain View, California on June 4, 2009. It was the first meeting for the council on plastic pollution, which was recently formed to raise awareness of this rising threat to the world's oceans. Said council member and marine biologist Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, We are finding plastic in the stomachs of sea turtles, birds, and fish all over the world. I find this extremely disturbing." In honor of World Oceans Day, the council has issued the following statement regarding this increasingly urgent threat to wildlife and human health: Do you know where our plastic goes? Did you know that our oceans are filling up with plastic pollution? Plastic fragments contaminate even the most remote locations on earth, and harmful chemicals leached by plastics are present in the bloodstream and tissues of almost every one of us. Plastic pollution harms people, animals, and the environment. Plastic is not biodegradable. In the marine environment, plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller particles that absorb toxic chemicals, are ingested by wildlife, and enter the food chain that we depend on. Consumption of throwaway plastics, such as bottles, containers, bags, and packaging, has spiraled out of control. Recycling is not a sustainable solution. The reality is that most of our ...

This is the music video for "Top Secret Man" by the japanese 80's new wave/synthpop band, the Plastics, as show on SCTV (episode 96, "Midnight Video Special") back in 1982. Even they aired a not-so-pristine copy of the video, but I don't know if a better copy of the source exists anywhere. It starts w/ the original mono audio intro by Dave Thomas ('Doug' of Bob & Doug mckenzie) as a (borderline offensive?) japanese video host, but then a stereo copy of the song is dubbed over the actual video.

This excerpt gives a definition of plastics (or polymers) and common attributes shared by all plastic materials. It discusses the basic molecular structure of a polymer. This program explains how and why plastics are different and cites several different types of polymers and processing considerations. Understanding Plastics emphasizes material handling, explains regrind, and covers the effects that moisture can have on molded part properties during processing. A.

An unused pilot that was offered to the Cartoon Network. It seems that I've started an internet rumor. I don't really know if Cartoon Network chose between this and Johnny Test. I was just using Johnny Test as an example of the low quality programming that CN was willing to put on as opposed to this pilot. Apparently CN has a crippling fear of success. Oh, I don't own Plastic man yadda yadda yadda. Don't sue me DC comics! That would so crush my soul after growing up reading your books.
