MEASUREMENTS OF THE IMPACTS OF MATERIALS SUBSTITUTION - A CASE STUDY IN THE AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY

This publication contains papers presented at the Winter Annual Meeting of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, San Francisco, California, December 10-15, 1978. The symposium considered policy rather than technical issues in materials. The intent was to demonstrate some aspects of the complicated relationships between materials substitution and development and our global resource base in terms of materials, energy, and the environment. The contents are as follows: Introduction, F.P. Huddle; Materials Substitution in the Automotive Industry, W.D. Compton; The Resources to Meet the Needs of the Automobile Industry in 1985, R.B. Gavert; Energy Requirements for the Material Needs of the Automobile Industry in 1985, J.T. Herridge and R.W. Hale; Materials Substitution in the Automotive Industry - Environmental Impacts, A.H. Purcell; Recycling the 1985 Automobile, M.B. Bever; and Summary, I. Le May.
