Eco-material suitable for the recycling-based society

EPS has excellent properties for recycling and its energy consumption throughout the process from production to recycling is small, and therefore EPS is a material suitable for the recycling-based society which enables sustainable development.

Recycling
・(Material recycling) : Production of plastic products or recycled EPS (“EPS to EPS”)
・(Thermal recycling) : Utilization of high heat energy by combustion
Saving Resources
・98% of EPS is air. Raw material used is only 2%
CO2 Reduction
・ Contribution to CO2 reduction by energy saving effect arising from its excellent insulating property
Environment-Consciousness
・ No generation of dioxins when burnt alone because ESP Consciousness is composed only of carbon and hydrogen
・ CFC’s are not used at all
