Online game highlights automotive plastics


The American Chemistry Council has developed an online car racing game to highlight how plastics contribute to automobile fuel-efficiency, safety and design.
The Plastics Speedway game allows drivers to choose seven decades of virtual vehicles -- from muscle cars to minivans -- to experience the differences in gas mileage, handling, speed, and more. As drivers maneuver around curves and obstacles at high speeds, they get to experience firsthand how plastics have contributed to vehicle performance.
In addition, ACC pointed out that plastics make up 50 percent of today’s automobiles by volume -- but only 10 percent by weight. “Replacing traditional materials with plastics has contributed significantly to lightweighting, which minimizes the load on the car engine, so it needs less fuel,” said Russell. “That’s good news for your wallet and for the environment.”
