Environnement

Conservation and protection of natural resources, as well as reducing CO2 emissions, are very important environmental issues. EPS and EPP contribute to that aim in different ways.

98% air for 2% of material.

Products made of EPS and EPP are composed of 98% air (density 20 kg / m³), which is exemplary in terms of efficient use of natural resources. They fulfil many functions with low consumption of raw materials.

A healthy manufacturing process.

The manufacture of EPS does not generate any risk to health or the environment. EPS does not damage the ozone layer (no use of CFCs or HCFCs). Processing and moulding require a small amount of energy and do not generate waste. 

Energy savings.

Thanks to their high-insulating properties, EPS and EPP are good for the environment. They reduce both the consumption of non-renewable natural resources (energy) and contribute to reducing CO2 emissions.

Because of their extreme lightness, packaging and other items made of EPS and EPP contribute to the reduction of fuel consumption of vehicles that transport them or in which they are fitted.

100% recyclable

EPS does not represent more than 0.1% of household waste. EPS collected from refuse sorting centres is 100% recycled.
