Our technical report card is certainly impressive. Improvements in processing, materials substitution, design to minimize materials usage, and recycling of metals and polymers, have all been remarkable. However, we are faced with twin dreadnoughts of change in the next decades, economic/technological ascendancy of developing nations and rising population. Add to these the need to reduce the effluence of greenhouse gases and we must anticipate formidable technological upheaval throughout the materials cycle.
Our professional societies need to step forward and play larger and significantly more visible roles in this arena. Working individually and in concert with others, the societies must broadcast our achievements, identify future areas for action, support industrial roadmapping efforts, and join with all who will participate in clarifying the flow of materials throughout their life-cycles.
