Event Overview

Building on the full circularity of polystyrene, and the recently confirmed low carbon footprint of rPS, the styrenics value chain is firmly committed to pioneering design for recycling, to optimise the feedstock and efficiency for circular polystyrene.

  • How will design for recycling propel the unique circular value of polystyrene? What will be the value add for the value chain?
  • How do polystyrene materials and applications work together to create the circular economy, demonstrated in the ‘Circularity Matrix’?
  • What do the Recyclass design guidelines for closed loop food contact recycling bring to circular polystyrene?
  • How close are we to mono-material polystyrene solutions for food contact?
