Sustainable materials at the Royal Society

There was a fascinating talk at the Royal Society on Monday by Dr Julian Allwood of the University of Cambridge on sustainable materials.

This is particularly important as these are carbon-intensive materials that are fundamental to our civilisation and with no viable substitutes.
