The EUMEPS Pledge sets out the commitment of the Expanded Polystyrene value chain to accelerate the current recycling programme and establishes ambitious recycling targets for 2025 in the main applications.
SCS is the joint industry initiative to significantly increase the circularity of styrenics by building on PS’ unique intrinsic capacity for circularity. Game-changing technologies such as depolymerisation back to its constituent monomer and dissolution will enable recycled PS to be used over and over again in its original applications, including food contact.
