Post-Petroleum Design gives design professionals the information they need to research, evaluate, and select materials, technologies and design strategies that meet the growing demand for sustainable design, plastic-free materials and process energy conservation. Designer profiles, studies, statistics and many color illustrations all highlight the work—some of the best design work to be found anywhere, and showcased here for the first time.

"Post-Petroleum Design is a must read for anyone wondering how we built our plastics economy - and how we might move beyond it. George Elvin elegantly weaves historical perspective, technical data, and persuasive first person design narratives into a compelling story which also includes actionable design principles. Post-Petroleum Design is both inspiring and a valuable technical reference, my favorite kind of book!"- Eben Bayer, CEO and Co-founder of Ecovative, USA
