Expanded polystyrene is 100% recyclable, non toxic, ecological

  • Contains 98% air. Requires no chemicals and a small amount of raw material and energy to be produced.
  • Contains no ozone damaging HFCs or HCFCs. EPS is neutral, stable and does not damage the environment.
  • Does not produce any toxic by-products in landfills. Stimulates plant growth by helping to aerate the soil.
  • Produces no toxic emissions when incinerated. Carbon dioxide, water vapour and a tiny amount of ash are let off into the environment.
  • Releases a considerable amount of heat energy when incinerated. 1 tonne of EPS is equivalent to the heat released by 1.3 tonnes of fuel oil. Can be recycled or reused for a number of applications: electricity, hot water or water vapour for heating buildings or industrial areas, etc.
  • Lightweight material and resistant to breakage. Contributes to reducing transportation fuel consumption. Less number of moves means less cost.
