Polystyrene whether expanded or extruded can be recycled
There are 2 main recycling streams: the PSE and PS sectorsThanks to grinding or simple melting processes, EPS packaging can be easily reprocessed either again into EPS parts or into polystyrene granules.
- The PSE sector.
These packages have been sorted, crushed and reinjected to produce different types of EPS products.
- The PS sector.
After sorting and milling, the beads are compacted in a block of EPS and extruded into PS granules. These granules will then be used to manufacture plastic injection products.
