Innovation lab for recycling

EPS is easy to recycle. But we do more: our industry proves to be forerunner of innovative recycling processes. Two industry consortia currently work on the development and the economical implementation of new technologies.

The EPS-Sure Project has created a pilot plant in raw material production facilities in Barcelona, Spain which has demonstrated the feasability to manufacture recycled polystyrene (rPS) with high quality to satisfy the demanding requirements for applications in food contact.

The PolyStyreneLoop Project sets up a large-scale demo plant as a closed-loop solution for the recycling of polystyrene (PS) insulation foam waste. The planned demonstration plant in Terneuzen, Netherlands, will work with CreaSolv® technology. Click here to learn more.

Both projects are supported by EU LIFE.
