Sustainability and Innovation: The Next Global Industrial Revolution

Salah M. El-Haggar

354 pages




Ten papers from the American University in Cairo present a cradle-to-cradle life cycle for promoting sustainable product development where materials flow in a closed loop without losing any resources through biological or technical metabolism. Three papers on innovation in the plastics industry describe manhole covers and shoreline erosion protection structures made from plastic rejects, the effect of fiber length on natural fiber-reinforced plastics, and a modified compression molding technology for wood-plastic composite products. The last chapter explores options for using marble and granite waste in concrete bricks, composite marble, cement manufacturing, and stone paper.
