Non-recycled plastics (NRPs), which make up 12.4 percent of municipal solid waste (MSW), have high value as a feedstock for conversion to energy or fuel because of their potentially significant heating value.   (Source: Gershman, Brickner & Bratton/US EPA)

That's pretty funny, bobjengr, thanks for the taco-shell story. Making fuel from various types of farm waste and food waste is not a new idea. There's sure a lot of methane and potential methane to go around. And when it comes to agricultural animal waste, these efforts are sorely needed.

In this slideshow's latest crop of new bio-based and renewable plastics and methods for making them, some materials can even be completely recycled several times without loss of original properties.
It's probably too late to buy one, but some lucky people will soon be the owners of only 50 electric motorcycles made entirely with 3D printing from a super-lightweight aluminum alloy.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory has developed a surface preparation method to improve joining carbon composites with aluminum, with potentially far-reaching ramifications for high-volume industrial applications.
Our latest crop includes ABS alternatives, tougher PLAs, flexible plastics including a flexible nylon, polymers with better heat resistance, and the first biocompatible resin for desktop 3D printing.
New and improved fastening methods are helping engineers join plastics, composites, and thinner metal sheets in a variety of product assemblies.
