PlasticsEurope Launches Industry Initiative to Drive Innovative Recycling Solutions for Polystyrene

Date Published: Tuesday 4th July 2017

PlasticsEurope recently launched an initiative to promote innovative recycling solutions for Polystyrene, in a push to support the European Union’s circular economy plan. The group aims to engage the value chain in the development and industrialization of promising new recycling technologies.   

Focusing on chemical recycling, the PlasticsEurope initiative aims at converting collected post-consumer polystyrene waste into virgin polystyrene. New technologies will enable the incorporation of post-consumer waste into plastic manufacturers’ production processes. The target is to generate high-quality polystyrene to meet the most demanding standards, ultimately for food contact applications.   

The initiative is part of the activities announced by PlasticsEurope at the K2016 to maximize the fullest potential of plastics in delivering resource efficiency gains within the circular economy.
