Chapter 2 The Chemical Nature of Plastics Polymerization Dr. 1 INTRODUCTION Although it is very difficult and probably of little value to produce an adequate definition of the word “plastics,” all plastics materials, before compounding with additives, consist of a mass of very large molecules. In the case of a few naturally occurring materials, such as bitumen; shellac; and amber, the compositions are heterogeneous and complex but in all other cases the plastics materials belong to a chemical family referred to as high polymers.

Many companies are addressing these issues, and nowadays most have clearly identified sustainability policies and defined targets which can be found on their websites. A good example in the packaging area is the Unilever Web site (Unilever, 2014). Progress against targets is monitored and reported. A number of packaging companies and major supermarkets have specific initiatives directed at packaging reduction. Innovative design can reduce product weight, and also facilitate better handling and reduced transportation costs and fuel consumption.
