World without oil: could it be a cleaner place?

As petrol prices increase, so does speculation about alternatives to crude oil and the plastics made from it.

We will be driving around in hydrogen fuel cell cars. Plastic, except in the most specialised applications, will be a thing of the past, replaced by some form of biodegradable, plant-based substitute.

There won’t be any polystyrene meat trays, your surfboard will be made from a product derived from vegetables, and as for the common plastic carrier bag, it won’t be around at all.
