Environmental benefits:
     Extremely safe
         
     EPS is non-toxic and totally inert. It contains no Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or Hydrofluorocarbons (HCFCs), and never has at any
     time during its life-cycle. It is also totally absent of any nutritional value, so no fungi or micro-organisms can grow within EPS.

     Recyclable

     EPS can be recycled in many ways once it comes to the end of its life. These include recycling directly into new building products
     and incineration to recover its inherent energy content. The choice of a recycling method  is based on technical, environmental &
     economic considerations.

     Can expanded polystyrene be recycled?

     EPS can be recycled if it is recovered without contamination from other materials. EPS waste can be ground and mixed with fresh
     EPS to make new foamed products.

     Alternatively EPS can be melted and extruded to make compact polystyrene, for items such as plant pots, coat hangers and wood
     substitutes or medium toughened polystyrene, for products from which sheet or thermoformed articles such as trays can be made.

     As part of a mixed plastic waste, EPS can be recycled to make, for example, fence posts and road signs, ensuring the plastic waste
     has a long and useful new life. Globally, EPS production and total recycling use very little energy in comparison to other insulation
     materials.
     Is expanded polystyrene banned anywhere in the world?
  
     Ans. No. Because of its excellent insulation and economic properties, EPS is used everywhere in the world.
