Title: Materials in Transition
Author: Broberg, Kate Liddle; DiGregorio, Rachelle; Madison, Erin; Hawkins, Lauren
Abstract: Through an investigation of plastic and aluminum production and recycling, waste to energy methods, plastic bottle use, and plastic bag use, we have come to the conclusion that the citizens and government of the United States need to work together to reduce primary material production and use. Additionally, we must increase recycling and reuse in order to close the production and consumption loop of potentially hazardous and energy-consuming products, primarily plastic and metals. Through these methods, we can best retain the embodied energy of waste materials and avoid excessive use of non-renewable resources.
