Polystyrene is valuable and sustainable and has many material applications that out-perform alternative solutions. From construction and insulation to safe and hygienic food storage to medical applications and electronic housings and more. It has enabled innovation, safety, and energy savings across dozens of industries making it indispensable to our daily lives. PS, polystyrene is recyclable.

With the introduction of many new technologies, today’s recycling may not be as simple as you think. Learn about four advanced recycling technologies that capture post-consumer plastic waste, deal with contaminants, and simplify sorting steps.

The year 2021 marks the 90th year since the invention of the first ready-to-use polystyrene. It may seem that this material, so indispensable to our modern way-of-life, is a recent, modern-age invention, but in fact the polystyrene we know today, actually came of age, in 1931. And, its beginnings go back even further - all the way back to 1839!

INEOS Styrolution has combined state-of-the-art sorting technology with our game-changing super-clean process to provide 100% post-consumer recycled polystyrene.

Styrenics has made our lives safer and easier through its use in creating high-quality packaging, medical applications, automotive components, household and electronics devices as well as construction materials. Watch this video to find out how this material has proven to be the best choice in building a safer, healthier, sustainable, and more productive world.

Innovative performance, powered by nature. This is what INEOS Styrolution is offering with its new range of sustainable products made using renewable feedstock.

Follow the coffee machine and find out how electronics waste can be recycled and given a new life.

Follow the polystyrene yoghurt cup and find out it gets recycled and “reincarnated” by the process of depolymerisation.

A successful demonstration of the viability of high-purity mechanical recycling of polystyrene. Due to polystyrene's low diffusion property, high purity levels of 99.9% and more of the polystyrene recyclate can be achieved.

ResolVe is a research project focused on the
chemical recycling of polystyrene. It is funded
by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research
(BMBF) and executed jointly by INEOS Styrolution
and Neue Materialien Bayreuth as well as with two
institutes of the University of Aachen, the Department
of Processing & Recycling (I.A.R.) and Institute
for Plastics Processing (IKV).

INEOS has pledged its full support to help
create a circular economy for plastics by
launching a global pledge with five targets,
to be met by 2025.


In this video, only 4 INEOS targets are mentioned.
INEOS included an additional target on PVC recycling after this video was made.
