Why EPS is considered as Sustainable and Eco friendly Material?

with No Comments
  • EPS is a good example of the efficient use of natural resources – it is 98% air.
  • The manufacture and use of EPS does not generate any risk to health or to the environment.
  • EPS does not damage the ozone layer since it does not use CFCs or HCFCs in the manufacturing process. EPS is 100 % CFC, HCFC Free material.
  • The transformation process consumes little energy and does not generate waste.
  • The use of EPS for thermal insulation in the construction industry contributes significant savings on heating and cooling buildings and a drastic reduction in the emission of polluting gases Co2, Co3.
  • EPS packaging protects products, helping to reduce wastage and its lightweight nature helps to reduce fuel consumption.
  • Non FR grade EPS can come directly into contact with foodstuffs as it meets all the prevailing international Health regulations.
  • It is chemically Inert, Fungi and bacteria cannot easily grow on EPS.
  • EPS makes up only a tiny part of Municipal Solid Waste (0.1%).
  • EPS is 100 % Recyclable
  • As it does not biodegrade EPS does not contaminate the air or water with gases or any soluble substances.
  • Ozone Depletion Potential Zero (ODP=0)
  • Low GWP (Global Warming Potential) thus Environment Friendly
